SOUTH African actor and producer, Kagiso Modupe’s Losing Lerato is hitting the screens soon and Nu Metro’s release date is September 13, 2019 – so go support our local productions.
Produced by Kagiso, who plays Thami who has recently lost his job at a top firm following accusations of fraudulent activities. This is the last straw for his wife Noluthando who, fearing a drop in her standard of living, abandons her marriage, taking their daughter Lerato with her.
Thami is desperate to maintain a relationship with his daughter, while Noluthando does everything in her power to ensure that Thami is denied access to Lerato.
After exhausting all known avenues, and desperate to be reunited with his daughter, Thami kidnaps Lerato from school, intending to flee Johannesburg for Kimberley by bus. This is an ill-conceived move that angers Noluthando and puts him on a collision course with the law.
Thami’s actions put his life, that of Lerato and their fellow passengers in danger and lead to a high-stakes hostage situation on the bus.
Then a shot rings out…
