Guilt is a South African television drama series created by Fidel Namisi which revolves around a group of neighbours who stumble across one million rands in a near death accident and must decide amongst themselves what to do about it.
Faced with the choice to declare the money to the police or share it, they agree to split the money amongst themselves. The guilt begins to eats them up, but things really explode when they discover where the money actually came from...
Mkhize Street, Emangeni Section, Tembisa is home to a tight-knit community. There's Phenyo, an impulsive, domineering 40-year-old taxi driver who wants to marry the love of his life but can't afford to.
