A fugitive addict loses track of her child when she leaves him behind alone. Fear meets hope. Anger meets love. Loss meets meaning. One night, one city, four lives changed forever and bound together by the unblinking gaze of this innocent child.

Synopsis

In a small section of inner-city Cape Town, a fugitive addict loses track of her child when she leaves him behind alone to turn one final trick; a frustrated cop faces up to the demons from a traumatic childhood that threatens his quest for a meaningful life; a young nurse clings to a disintegrating bubble of fantasy that shields her from facing life on life’s terms; and a designer in a crumbling relationship is confronted by his fear of connection as he looks for salvation beyond his uncomfortable personal boundaries. In a city wracked by conflict, contradiction, and survivalism, these four characters each discover surprising and profound truths about their purposes as human beings through their inextricable connections to others. Fear meets hope. Anger meets love. Loss meets meaning. One night, one city, four lives changed forever and bound together by the unblinking gaze of an innocent child.
