In this visceral and poetic piece, writer and director Leanetse Seekoe introduces us to Ruth, her family’s history, and the gendered expectations that are imprinted both in her mother and in herself. Ruth guides us through a pathway in which tradition, opposition, and freedom are key for defining the character’s future.
