Nommer 37

One man’s crime, is another man’s opportunity.

Nommer 37
This gritty local film has secured American distribution, which should be interesting. Set in the ganglands of Cape Town, our hero is a recently-crippled gangster who is now wheelchair-bound and cooped up in his apartment, with no one to support him except his devoted girlfriend. He is heavily indebted to his former gang-mate, a sociopathic loan shark. With no way of paying the money back, he despairs for himself and his girlfriend, until he witnesses a murder and decided to blackmail the killer. Things get more even complicated when a cop comes snooping around trying to solve the murder. The film is an extended version of a multi-award-winning short film of the same name. In Afrikaans language with English subtitles.
