Andrew comes home one evening to find that his wife, Michelle has kidnapped Sipho, the man who had hijacked her a week earlier. Sipho came back to the house thinking that there was money hidden away. So begins a struggle of wits between the two, as Michelle thinks that the only solution is to kill him, whilst Andrew feels, that following the law is a better option. Through their struggles, we learn of the ordeal that Michelle had to endure with Sipho and his accomplice, the Other Man. How far would a person go to defend what is theirs?

You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them, but the only thing you can’t do is ignore them because they change things… they push the human race forward, because the ones who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world, are the ones who do.”
