Award winning multimedia NGO HEARTLINES and Quizzical Pictures bring you Nothing For Mahala, a film about a man whose love for money comes at a high cost. A comedy drama in the vein of The Full Monty, Nothing For Mahala takes a fresh, comical,and sometimes critical look at our relationships with money and people. Axe Gumede ( Thapelo Mokoena) ,an up-and coming property agent, is desperate to make his mark in life and believes you have to spend money in order to make it. Only problem is Axe is spending a lot more than he is making ,driving the flashy car and paying through his nose for an apartment with the right address . This extravagant lifestyle gets him into trouble with loan sharks and through a series of mishaps ,in trouble with the law. His fast -paced career is rudely interrupted when he gets sentenced to 200 hours of community service at an old- age home. There he meets and gets assigned to Hendrik ( Marius Wyers) ,a grumpy old man who spent his life chasing money and finds himself miserable and alone. Their story is a comic clash of cultures spiced up with hard hitting- life lessons.
