The Transkei Run
It is a painfully hungover Saturday morning for two incorrigible small-town scallywags. Jeremy "Spikes" Vorster and his impulsive but charismatic sidekick, Zachary Post, decide to flee their previous night's regrets in search of adventure in the rural Transkei. A run-in with a local taxi gang sets in motion a series of events that unravels a tense and violent misadventure as the two young rebels are forced to defend themselves at all costs. What results is a gritty, uniquely South African undertaking, complete with sex, drugs and crawling paranoia.
