Gat in die Muur (Hole in the Wall)
South African Feature
Gat in die Muur (Hole in the Wall) is a story about discovering life as one goes on your final journey to death. Riaan (Andre Odendaal) is a maverick and lives life and all its pleasures to the fullest…. money, sex and a good daily swim! He gets diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer and chooses to experiment with raw marijuana as a means to at least numb the pain. He brings his only child and son Ben - who lives abroad - to South Africa to travel with him and the mysterious Ava on a last road trip. The trip takes them to his best friend Tony, who manages their Coffee farm in the Transkei. On this last journey he introduces LIFE to his son and to Ava in a manner which is unusual to both of them, showing his son aspects of his own life and of a life which had been unknown to Ben all this time. It’s a story of life, love, true friendship and good coffee across the color line between a white Afrikaner and his Xhosa friend.
