Eileen DeSandre as Miss Helen; Jamie Bosworth Photographer 
Synopsis: "Miss Helen, an eccentric widow and sculptor, lives alone in a small village in the Karoo desert. When Reverend Marius argues for moving her into an old age home for her own safety, Miss Helen questions whether to give up, give in, or go on. She summons the only person she trusts: Elsa, a young schoolteacher who loses her footing while taking aim at society’s treatment of the elderly and of those who do not conform. Birth, death, and what comes next are brought under examination as the artist courageously asks: What is true faith?"
