The Cracks
Teresa is suffering from postnatal depression after the birth of her son. To find comfort elsewhere she temporarily moves back with her husband to her parents’ house. However, this decision doesn’t seem to have much effect on Teresa’s state of mind. She now must make a choice: either she tries to heal the cracks in her marriage, or she sets out to rekindle a love from her youth, leaving her sorrowful existence behind her.  

 

Leave
Here is a romantic drama that seeks to arouse emotions such as nostalgia and misunderstanding. Laura and Federica were once much more than friends. Now, Laura struggles to return to Federica and with everything that once made her happy, while Federica struggles to shed the past and continue her path.  

 

My Mother’s Girlfriend
Renuka and Sadiya, two working-class women in love with each other, enjoy their day out celebrating Renuka’s birthday. After a fun-filled day, they head home to spend the night together. But unknown to them, Renuka’s son is around.  This is the story of what happens when these two relationships collide. 

 

Second Parent
Parenting for Julia and Kat is overcoming “mommy challenges.” When their daughter, Becca, asks for the one thing Kat has difficulty giving, will doing it to please Becca supersede all the anxiety she feels? 

 

Tribe
When the global COVID-19 pandemic breaks out and South Africa goes into hard lockdown, some of the worst affected members of society are migrants and refugees, who are ineligible for government assistance.  Nyasha, a lesbian migrant from Zimbabwe, creates an intricate network of aid for her fellow LGBTQIA+ migrant community: a group of people she has come to call her new family.
