“No matter how long it has been since you last saw your relatives, meeting up at family gatherings – especially funerals – can lead to drama and more drama”.
Featuring, Leeanda Reddy, Bollywood’s Lillette Dubey, Jailoshini Naidoo, Kajal Bagwandeen, Rahul Brijnath, Pranesh Maharaj, Ruben Naidoo and Zakeeya Patel as the dysfunctional Isaac family.
This typical, and often very emotional, scenario is also the inspiration behind award-winning producer Bianca Isaac’s directorial debut, #3 DAYS TO GO, which puts family relationships in the spotlight!
The movie marks a milestone for this talented writer and producer, who has crafted a career in storytelling with acclaimed drama series Umilio, Swartwater, Kruispad and Getroud Met Rugby.
Isaac, who owns FigJam Entertainment, a production company specialising in feature films, is looking forward to being in the director’s seat.
“I am a producer at heart, but being able to direct this sensational new project is very exciting”, said Isaac.
#3 DAYS TO GO tells the story of adult siblings who, after the sudden death of their father, are forced to return to their childhood home – with an assortment of partners, children and issues in tow. They need to survive three days in each other’s company, under one roof, before they spread their father’s ashes and part ways.
This film serves a slice of life and the story is applicable to any culture and race, with hilariously funny moments and deeply touching ones. It is about family, the choices we make and finding redemption. You may recognise someone you know in the story… or you may even recognise yourself.
