Movie Info

In this update of the classic opera, cigarette factory worker Carmen (Pauline Malefane) wounds her co-worker Pinki (Ruby Mthethwa) during a fight and then uses promises of a future rendezvous to convince police sergeant Jongikhaya (Andile Tshoni) to let her go free. The devout Jongikhaya, lonely and crippled with guilt about killing his brother as a child, falls under Carmen's spell. When Carmen maintains her callously flirtatious ways, Jongikhaya's jealousy drives him to murderous ends.
