In the Dark
M-Net City (DStv 115)
Murphy is a hard-living, hard-drinking, disaffected 20-something with a penchant for casual sex. She also happens to be blind.
She spends the majority of her time in a one block radius that includes her apartment, a local bar and a convenience store where she buys tampons and candy bars.
Murphy lives with her roommate Jess and her guide dog Pretzel, whom she reluctantly has come to love.
Her closest friend is a teenager named Tyson who she befriends after he saved her from a violent mugging.
But her life comes crashing down when she stumbles upon what she's sure is his lifeless body in the alley outside her apartment.
By the time the police arrive, there is no body to be found, leaving everyone around Murphy to question her.
But Murphy is determined to find the truth, which opens up her world far beyond the comforts of her block.
