"a sensational noir thriller" The Guardian

Director Jahmil X.T. Qubeka's stylish and compelling thriller follows an introverted high school teacher, Parker Sitole (Mothusi Magano), in rural South Africa as he embarks on an obsessive affair with a pupil. Mothusi Magano is remarkable in the lead role, delivering a powerful, and almost dialogue free, performance as the troubled teacher. The air of mystery surrounding this enigmatic character is heightened by the director's non-linear approach to the film's narrative structure - Qubeka builds tension throughout, drip-feeding the audience information which gives us greater insight into Parker's past, and his motivations.
