Faith Baloyi is a policewoman that will bend her duties to help two women on the run; Izel Bezuidenhout is one of these two women and her run is also a first step towards liberation from an oppressive life, and from the law, of course. The two actresses talk with us about the preparation for their roles and the importance of the theme of female affirmation that underlies the thriller’s plot.

Flatland: Two young women are on the run through South Africa’s hinterland, hotly pursued by a policewoman who is trying to solve a murder case. A fast-paced road movie about female self-empowerment and a divided country.
