Are you ready for some Mzansi Noir?
Adapted from acclaimed author Deon Meyer’s crime novel, Trackers features three stories colliding explosively in Cape Town in an action-packed thriller featuring organised crime, smuggled diamonds, state security, black rhinos, the CIA and an international terrorist plot.
In rural Loxton, South Africa, Lemmer (James Gracie) reluctantly embarks on a shadowy smuggling operation. Meanwhile, Cape Town’s Presidential Bureau of Intelligence launches a high-stakes, covert investigation into a terrorist plot after a police informant blows the whistle on a meeting between local Islamic extremists and Suleiman Daoud (Emmanuel Castis), a senior Al Qaeda operative.
As PBI chief Janina Mentz (Sandi Schultz) carefully directs the sting, special agent Quinn is eager to make an arrest – and Milla, a housewife who’s escaped an abusive suburban existence, lands a job as a researcher on the team.
