Cape Town is not all overseas visitors and cosmopolitan chic-ness – beneath the façade of wealth is an underworld of street life, struggle and hustle.

Phybia Dlamini’s sophisticated, well-acted, beautifully filmed drama, based on the plays Thirteen Cents and The Quiet Violence of Dreams by K. Sello Duiker, follows the lives of a clutch of Cape Town’s unheralded underdogs. A man, recently out of Valkenberg, lives in a halfway house and battles a terrible past and his feelings for a flat mate. A street child, on the verge of becoming a teenager, does what he needs to stay alive and a prostitute tries to escape her brutal pimp. Their lives intersect with intriguing consequences.
