Since 2009, corrective rape has become the most common crime against lesbians in South Africa. Busisiwe, a victim of this practice from the age of 16, had to repeatedly face a harrowing dilemma: should she keep the children born of rape and learn to love them?
Mummy Busi is an intimate family portrait that takes place in the province of Gauteng, near Johannesburg, where the rate of crime is rapidly increasing. Busisiwe is trying to raise her five children as a single mother, while juggling the demands of a daily job. Recalling her past, she reveals how she has built a family in this difficult environment.
