Psychological thriller where political ghosts from the Apartheid era torture three generations of women in an affluent Cape Town villa.

Tsidi and her daughter are forced to move in with her mother Mavi. Since Tsidi was little, her mother has lived in a nice house in the Cape Town suburb Constantia, where she has worked as a maid for Diane. Tsidi got to grow up with her grandmother, and is now provoked by her mother’s loyal submission to her white “madame,” who is mysteriously absent in the house. As three generations are now to coexist in the lavishly furnished dwelling, peculiar things begin to happen. In Flatlands (GFF 2020), Jenna bass presented a political new interpretation of Westerns set in a South African context. In Good Madam she, in the same way, loads the horror genre with contemporary relevance and Apartheid history, and fires a thought-provoking, South African relative to Jordan Peele’s Get Out.
