A lonely factory worker joins the men of his community in the mountains of the Eastern Cape to initiate a group of teenage boys into manhood. When a defiant initiate from the city discovers his best-kept secret, Xolani’s entire existence begins to unravel.
The Wound is a visually breathtaking meditation on the wounds that exist on the surface and those deeper scars that never truly heal.
