Five Tiger

South Africa202011minColorFiction

Fiona supports her sick husband and her daughter in South Africa. She makes money through hard labor, but there are not many things that she can do to earn a living. A god-fearing lady, Fiona finds herself in a transactional relationship with a renowned church leader. Absolute poverty exploits a woman's body and a hypocritical religious power uses Fiona as a tool to meet sexual desire. The film depicts the social issues of the nation by cross-connecting the structure of religious circles and the sexual trafficking of the poor. Director Khumalo made this movie after an inspiring conversation with a deeply religious sex worker. He says he wanted to tell people that the very institutions that are supposed to help us survive could sometimes become what are bringing us down.
