In the backdrop of apartheid South Africa, two women meet and their worlds are turned upside down. Miriam (Lisa Ray) is a traditional Indian mother - hardworking and self-effacing. Amina (Sheetal Sheth) breaks all the rules by driving a taxi and setting up a cafe with a local black man. In the face of outraged disapproval, their friendship flourishes. But the price, for Miriam, is the discovery of impossible truths about her marriage. In a system that divides white from black, black from Asian and the women from men, what chance is there for an unexpected love to survive?

The screening at Bafta will be followed by a Q&A with director Shamim Sarif and producer Hanan Kattan
