Set in a remote South African village, a reclusive older woman, outrages her Afrikaans neighbours by collaborating with a local shepherd to turn her family home into an extraordinary piece of art.

Based on the true story of Helen Martins and Koos Malgas and their creation, ‘The Owl House’.

Inspired by images from pictures and postcards, their world becomes dominated by form and colour. In her struggle to find the ‘light’, Helen looks towards Mecca as Koos faces the reality of apartheid prejudice and survival.
