It was based on a true story of a hideous murder, where the victim's body was disposed of in a suitcase.[1]

The film was dedicated to the memory of veteran actor Ramalao Makhene, who died shortly after shooting was completed.[2]


Two brothers, together with one of their wives, plot to kill the old man they live with and steal his pension. When they try to dispose of the body, things start to go horribly wrong.
