The film follows three Scorpion agents in their investigation of xenophobic attacks that took place in a small town. A darkly humourous look at South Africa’s political dynamics, the film features powerful performances from the all-star cast of Vusi Kunene, Paul Buckby, Fana Mokoena and Isidingo’s Hlubi Mboya.
