I know you're doubting yourself,
but that man did it.

Hey! You got the wrong guy!

I wouldn't be surprised
if he's the one that shot Vuyo.
But Vuyo thinks he's innocent.
Vuyo is wrong.
And I'm right.
[man 2] You got the wrong guy! Hey!
Jiba is not your guy. Hey!

[sighs] Ma, we need to stand up
to people like him. Like, toxic men who
It's complicated, Zee. [sighs]
Any changes?
Uh, just the, uh, twitching still. Yeah.
You've been here since very early,
Mrs. Mahlati.
Why don't you guys go home
and get some rest?
I'm not going anywhere.
[dramatic music plays]
[Zinhle] Has anyone seen my green jacket?
You mean my green jacket, my Zee?
[Vuyo] He was in there for three hours.
He was the last person to see her alive.
[Leonard] I came in late last night.
I didn't wanna wake you.
[Zinhle echoing]
Has anyone seen my green jacket?
- Ma!
- Excuse me.
Good news. He's improving.
- Where are you going?
- I have to go.
I have to check something at home.
I'll be back. We'll talk, all right?

to see her alive.

- Something's off. It's all too neat.
What do you mean, "neat"?
I mean, he was there. He slept with her.
He's got the motive.
You said it yourself.
My brother's fucked-up.
He's a narcissist, an asshole.
But a killer?
A killer, Nandi?
Don't you think it's all
too obviously pointing towards Leonard?
I'm just so confused.
Vuyo, I'm so Just make up your mind.
You're the one
who said Leonard tried to kill you, right?
I said, "I could have I c ould have died."
Maybe he's setting all of this up.
[sighs] Look, I'll be
the first person to say, you know,
Jacob has done a lot of shit.
But neither of us believe
he could have killed Brenda.
What if it's someone else?
Someone like?
- Like who?
- Someone else who's got skin in the game.
[phone ringing]
[phone beeps]
Okay, okay. Okay. Slow down!
Okay, I I'm on my way.
[phone beeps]
What is it? Is it Leonard?
No, something else.
Act normal.
Vuyo, wait. What about this?
What about this?
Hide it.
[dramatic music playing]
Why were you supposed to meet?
[exhales shakily] He was meant
to be giving me
all the evidence in the Grootboom case.
[police officer] Hey, guys!
I found something!
What the hell is he talking about?
Jacob says Dad framed his father
for raping a child.
Tell me what's going on, Ma, please.
[sighs] Zee, um
Do you remember the
the Benjamin Jiba case?
It happened a long time ago.
You must have been about nine, ten.
Mm, some prisoner committed suicide.
[Nandi and Leonard]
Happy birthday to ♪
[in Xhosa] Why don't you answer
your phone, swine?
[in Zulu] What's going on?
[in Xhosa] Benjamin Jiba killed himself
this morning.
[in English] It's okay.
That prisoner was Jacob's dad.
[Jacob] So when is your birthday?
20 December.
Same day my father died.
[Nandi sniffling]
He shot himself in front of Jacob.
- Yeah.
- [Zinhle breathing shakily]
Jacob thinks that your dad framed his dad.
[scoffs] He he would never do that.
He would never do something like that.
- [Nandi] No, Zee. It's fine.
- [Zinhle] He would never. He
So, is this why you don't wanna report
Jacob to the cops?
I just don't wanna make things worse.
- So what do we do, Mom?
- Let's just focus on your dad, okay?
[sniffs] Focus on your dad
and just stay away from Jacob.
Okay? [sniffs]
[sighs] Baby, I need to get some air.
[sniffs, sighs]
[somber music playing]
[in Afrikaans] Okay, Auntie Mei.
[in English] Okay, bye.
[Roxanne sighs heavily]
Those fucking assholes,
I want to fucking nail them all.
Roxanne, I know we're hurting, but this is
when we need to keep cool heads. We
You can't be doing this, Roxanne.
You can't even keep these documents here.
We're dealing with someone powerful,
someone who doesn't mind
killing policemen.
[Roxanne] This evidence
implicates your brother.
My brother's no murderer.
- It's time to face the facts.
- [Vuyo] Yes, we are.
My brother is in hospital
fighting for his life.
Yeah, well, maybe he set things in motion.
Or he's a target.
[sighs heavily]
I think you should sit this one out.
Roxanne, you know I can't do that.
Charlie's one of my oldest friends.
- Vuyo.
- [Vuyo] Roxanne, a policeman is dead.
A judge is in hospital.
That's what we're dealing with.
Vuyo! I don't wanna see you
anywhere around this case.
Am I clear?
So it's like that now?
I suggest you leave.
[dramatic music plays]
Hey, Nandi.
- Are you okay?
- [gasps]
You stay away from me. Stay away from me!
[in Xhosa] Please forgive me [grunts]
[in English] I hate
that you came into my life.
[scoffs] Nandi, your life was fucked-up
before I got there. You know that.
My husband needs me.
Nandi, your husband,
don't you wanna know who he really is?
[in Xhosa] Don't you wanna know
what Brenda said to me the day she died?
[in English] Fuck.
[in Zulu] What did she say?
[Jacob in Xhosa]
I think I left my belt here yesterday.
I know you from somewhere.
I just don't know from where.
[Benjamin in English] I didn't do it!
I didn't do it! I didn't do it!
[echoing] I didn't do it!
[dramatic music plays]
[Jacob in Xhosa] Are you all right?
[glass clinking]
[Jacob grunts]
You're Benjamin's son.
Your father was innocent.
[in English] Look, I don't know
what you're talking about.
[in Xhosa] I even went to his funeral
to beg for his forgiveness.
[in English] I'm sorry.
[in Xhosa] Leonard
Leonard was convinced
about everything that happened.
I promise you I didn't see anything.
Look, I'm not who you think I am.
- [in English] You are! You are!
- [in Xhosa] I am not who you think I am.
I don't know why you're feeling guilty,
but it has nothing to do with me.
You hear me?
[glass clinks]
[in English] She confessed.
She lied for your husband.
Firstly, they
They killed my father's name.
[in Xhosa] On top of that,
they made him kill himself.
[in Zulu] What do you want?
[in English] Why don't you just
leave me alone? Just leave me al
- [sighs]
- Nandi, Nandi. Listen to me, Nandi.
I need you to know how sorry I am.
Nandi, I'm no I'm no psychopath.
I'm no fucking psychopath.
[crying] Listen to me. Listen.
[in Xhosa] Nandi, please forgive me.
I'm begging you.
[in English] Please forgive me.
Okay. Stand up. Stand up.
I'm sorry.
I just want you.
- Nandi, I want you.
- No.
You crossed too many lines.
You've got your revenge now.
What did you get from it?

to get to my mother this whole time.
- I don't know what you're talking about.
- Jacob, be real with me.
You owe me that at least.
Zee, I'm in love with her.
What the fuck are you on?
It's the truth.
Look, I know I shouldn't have fallen
in love with her, but I did.
And that shit you've been saying
about my father?
You've been saying that shit
to get to my mother. Are you sick?
Listen to me. Everything I said
about your father's the truth.
- Bullshit.
- And what's happening to him is justice.
You fucking his daughter
to get to his wife is justice?
You were my first, and you knew.
And it was a game.
[Jacob] See, when Nandi
When Nandi said it was over between us,
I I reacted badly.
What what what do you mean,
"when she said it was over"?
Jacob, Jacob, look at me.
What do you mean,
