Lunatic Synopsis


Khanda, former driver to a presidential candidate is transfered to a female prison disguised as a woman. His two prison inmates, Sdudla and Bhakhosi are unaware Khanda is a man. The two women have been imprisoned to stop them betraying state secrets and constantly lie to stay alive but when alone they are vulnerable and confess who they are hoping to be rescued.

Khanda is rejected by his cell mates and forms an alliance with Nyembezi, an emotionally unstable woman confined to an isolation wall. Two female guards Supervisor and Bhoza, who have the task of keeping all prisoners in check manipulate Khanda for their sexual needs. 

Hell breaks loose when Bhakhosi discovers Khanda is a man, which leads to his death and Sdudla's insanity, torture and solitary confinement.
