THE TOWN written by LINDIWE MAKGALEMELE

The Town will be awarded a production grant of $15,000.

 

LOGLINE

A car breaks down in an anonymous South African town.


SYNOPSIS

Seven-year-old Lesedi spends her days waiting and hoping for something to happen. She begins her morning as she has many others: chasing and throwing stones at the cars that are passing through the centre of her isolated town. Hitting one, she returns to Marta’s, a middle-aged shopkeeper and her best friend, to wait out the rest of the day. Waiting flows through Marta's daily routine, and she is content and well accustomed to it. Lesedi is restless, expectant, and yearns for movement.

A car similar to the one Lesedi threw stones at breaks down introducing Naledi to the community, and leading Lesedi to believe that she caused the breakdown. Though Lesedi is wary of being discovered, she is enamoured by Naledi and an unlikely albeit transient connection is formed.
