Sisi Wami

Sis' Wami follows three women who resort to the world of crime in order to get their way in the midst of chaos and outrage. Buhle, who is the wife of the village's chief, has the biggest burden to carry as she has to ensure that she delivers on the people's requests, whilst still honoring her husband. Due to the dire situation of the riots and unrest in parts of Gauteng, but mostly KwaZulu-Natal, she decides to oppose her husband's wishes in his absence. She then recruits her younger sister Thuli, and her friend Simphiwe to assist her on this, and they plan a heist. All hell breaks loose when betrayal ruins the trust between them, shortly after executing the heist and getting caught. Simphiwe pins the trouble on the sisters and finds her way out, whilst the others succumb to the intricate situation.
