A Mauritian Mobius

A Mauritian Mobius

The lives of a wealthy businessman, two drug addicts and a cantankerous obeah woman are strangely intertwined in the events following a woman’s suicide. Set on the culturally and ethnically diverse island of Mauritius and filmed entirely in its local Creole language, this weaving story touches on the macabre yet finds humorous twists that embody both the light and dark areas of human life.
