Synopsis

A rookie police officer, Jacob Boy, is hijacked and kidnapped by a dying notorious township crime boss on his first day of work. Jacob later learns that his family has been kidnapped and buried alive somewhere in Soweto - and he has four hours to save them.

Jacob is a family man, who is forced to turn bad in a desperate attempt to save his family.

The kidnapper, a wealthy Soweto businessman, wants revenge on other cops who have turned their backs on him and who gave him poison that will kill him within four hours.

To get back at them he kidnaps Jacob's family, hides them somewhere with only four hours of oxygen and gives Jacob an ultimatum: kill the four cops who have killed him, or his family dies.

4 Hours was produced for Magic Factory by Alda Venter with executive producer Patronella Sello. The director was Vivek Mehta and it was written by Ross van Leeve with head writers Julie Hall and Katleho Ramaphakela.
