Mangaliso Zolo lives in the southern suburbs of Cape Town, near the university. He has an office job at a large corporate, but he does little every day bar shuffle papers and surf the 'net. Penumbra charts Manga's daily struggles with the twin pull, from friends and acquaintances, of reckless living or charismatic Christianity. A very different Cape Town comes to life -- far removed from both the gloss of tourism brochures or the familiar poverty of the Flats -- and a certain dissolute South African reality is dissected with haunting precision.
