Produced in collaboration with Very Real Time (Cape Town) & Merv Brazinski Productions

A neighbourhood investigation centered around a house in Cape Town. Current and former tenants, neighbours, a homeless man in a wheelchair, an architect, a former top-model and a flower seller are among these who provide stories about the house, its surroundings and the hyper-local power dynamics - 10 years after the fall of the apartheid regime.
