After four South African people of influence are reported dead, detective Ace is bound on a journey of twists and turns to find who committed the acts of murder. Bound in a room, with tension and perplexity, sit four suspects, who hold the key to unlocking this mystery. Bound uses the hilarity, profound nature and complexity of relatable South African characters to explore the imbalance, broken dreams, and existentialism that the system has created for its people. In a single room, we explore the bounds of ‘what if’. What if the people took back their power?
