Based on true events, Ellen tells of the troubled relationship between a mother and her drug-addicted son - a relationship that will eventually drive her to the edge and lead to his murder.

In 2007, the death of 20 year old Abie Pakkies created a stir in South Africa and the world. The most disturbing part of the case was that the murderer was his mother, Ellen. When advocate Adrian Samuels takes on the case, he is determined to prove that Ellen Pakkies had no choice. But what compelled her to stop seeking help? How does a mother become desperate enough to take her own son's life?

Told across two timelines, Ellen is the harrowing account of a woman put through the penal system, tried for murder and driven by an unflinching love for her son. It delves into the inner psyche of a family ravaged by drugs in one of the most dangerous communities in South Africa. A scourge that extends beyond the Cape Flats and highlights a systematic failure to protect the poorest of the poor.

Computer whiz and prodigal son Zaid is on a quest for spiritual discovery. As an international aid worker, he lives as far away as possible from his father, Aziz Randera, a successful importer-exporter and occasional money launderer and loan shark. But when he is fired from his job in a refugee camp for ignoring the rules by actually doing good rather than shuffling papers, Zaid returns to Johannesburg and to Mayfair, an Indian Muslim enclave, for the first time in years.

At home, everything has changed. The old neighbourhood is full of new immigrants with clashing customs. Business has been tough – his father is in over his head as a result of a soured deal with ruthless Somalis. Smelling blood, young Turks are circling the family business and Zaid remains reluctant to become involved but when Ameena, his first love, and Faiza, his baby sister, are kidnapped after a failed cash-drop intended to resolve the Somali deal, will he finally get off the fence and choose between saving his family and preserving his faith?

Zaid is fighting to be a good man in an evil world, but this world is fighting back.
