Fatherless and raised by his grandmother, thirteen year old Ricardo Galam lives in South Africa’s Cape Flats, a unique and volatile sub culture dominated by two Number gangs, the 26 and 28. Ricardo’s future as a chess prodigy is threatened by his growing interest in the 26 whose local leader is grooming him as a potential member. Unknown to Ricardo, the father he’s never known has been released from prison. Farakhan, a reformed general in the 28, is back in his old neighbourhood, an intruder in 26 territory. In a story that is at times raw and violent at other times touching and true. FOUR CORNERS is a gripping drama set against the backdrop of a gang war in Cape Town which has been raging for a 100 years; a little known fact.
“This was a very carefully crafted mockumentary on life in darkest Essex. Very strong ensemble playing, carefully paced and a brilliant script.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eI loved it, this could be a very successful sitcom and has some elements of Benidorm. Tom Davis was brilliant and threw himself into the dead pan and ironic situations.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eJust watched series 1 and it was really great, Iu0026#39;m not sure why but this series reminds me of Sorry with Ronnie Corbet, I think perhaps because he always started with a personal plan and then it went awry, either way I loved it”
