Daddy LongLegs

Izzy and Quin are hustling their way through the moving landscape of 1997 South Africa. As two poor kids they collect debt from a child but he offers them the opportunity to rob a 5 Star restaurant instead. They begin to plan the heist when they both get ideas to improve their situation, but the closer they get, the more their paths begin to split down the middle.
