Gentle, beautiful, pacifist Emma witnesses a murder in the wild. Six violent men killing a cop in cold blood. So, they hunt her like an animal in the desolate Karoo. She should have been easy prey. But life is full of surprises
Emma le Roux just wants to go home for the holidays. Gentle, beautiful, pacifist Emma. She's made the trip to her father's farm a thousand times. Piece of cake. But not today. Today she will cross paths with Bosman and Baz and Jay. And Boela and AJ and Piet. Bosman is the mastermind of the drug syndicate. A violent psychopath. Baz and Jay are his henchmen - violent dogs on a short leash. AJ and Boela, spoiled brats looking for validation, are on board to make a quick buck in the criminal underworld. And then there's Piet, the weakling, who is willing to do just about anything for his cousin Bosman. Emma witnesses the murder of a policeman at their hands. And they see her seeing them. Now they're hunting her down like an animal. She's easy prey, after all - it'll all be over soon. The problem is, Emma is the daughter of Jacques le Roux. And Jacques le Roux was a Special Forces soldier. The hunt isn't going according to plan. Everything starts falling apart, and fast. At first they were...
After watching this South African movie, I want to say just just one thing; treat your daughter as a son and teach her to be ruthless with the scums of the society. The lead character Emma, played her part well. No histrionics. Well-made and well-acted character.
While there is nothing new in the story line to rave about, the dreary location suits the mood of the film. Except the main baddie, other actors, as henchmen, are just plain useless. The father character of Emma ambles along, describing her.
Watchable movie. Nothing great, but still worth watching once, especially with your daughter, if you are blessed with one.
