DiepCity is a South African telenovela that explores the struggle of four young women who were forced into crime while in high school just to make ends meet, trying to make their way in the world.
The world comes crumbling down for small-time house burglar Nox (Nozuko Ncayiyane) after her bright, straight-A student younger brother Sibusiso is fatally shot during a house robbery he was not supposed to be part of in the leafy suburbs of Johannesburg.
The robbery was set up by rogue security guard and low-level gangster Mgedeza (Mduduzi Mabaso) and carried out by Nox and her crew.
After doing time behind bars following her arrest, Nox returns to find her family still living in a shack after her alcoholic father Bonga (Hamilton Dlamini) lost his job, while her mother Thandiwe (Dawn Thandeka King) - who has not forgiven her for Sibusiso's death - continues to work as a domestic worker.
In the Season 2 premiere: Thandiwe finally comes home after being held at the police station for questioning.
DiepCity was created by Gwydion Beynon, Phathu Makwarela, Mandla N and Mpumelelo Nhlapo and is produced by Black Brain Pictures.
