EUROPEAN PREMIERE - Raw South African horror comes of age. Busi, a destitute woman with dangerously repressed emotions, lands a job as a cleaner at a run down hospital in the heart of Johannesburg. Desperate for money so she can also relocate her younger sister, she learns to cope despite the predatory and corrupt hospital manager. But when Busi discovers an abandoned girl in the hospital, one who believes she’s tormented by supernatural forces, she must also face her own past demons in order to save the child from the abusive and insatiable monster that pursues them both relentlessly.
