Abstract:Abeeda, a pious single Muslim mother in Cape Town who wears traditional garment and prays five times a day, becomes hooked on gambling after a trip to the casino. When she discovers that one of her sons is dying of AIDS, she finds consolation in gambling. She soon loses everything. What remains are debts and connections with dangerous criminals. A lively portrait of the Muslim community in Cape Town, of greed and of addiction; based on co-director Rayda Jacobs' book. [Abstract reproduced from dvd-video]
