A preview clip of The Number (aka 28s), the upcoming South-African drama movie directed by Khalo Matabane based on a script by Paul Ian Johnson and starring Mothusi Magano, Kevin Smith, Warren Masemola, Presley Chweneyagae, Deon Lotz, Lemo Tsipa, and Charlton George:
The Number – A bortherhood
“In this harrowing, based-on-fact story about South Africa’s most dangerous and notorious prison gang, a high-echelon gang member begins to question his allegiance to his ‘family’ after a young recruit is brutally killed.
Based on the life of actual gang defector Magadien Wentzel (played by Mothusi Magano), The Number finds Magadien at a crossroads. Part of the 28s — the ‘warrior’ faction of The Numbers — Magadien has risen to the upper echelons of power. But when a young recruit is killed, the hardened prisoner begins to question his allegiance to his family on the inside, which has cost him his family on the outside. Now under the watch of a new warden, Magadien has the chance to make early release if he can turn his back on the 28s, and if he can find the strength to face himself.”
