With an army of nan­otech­nol­ogy in his veins, he’s an un­stop­pable force – stronger than ever and able to heal in­stantly. But, in con­trol­ling his body, the com­pany has sway over his mind and mem­o­ries, too. Now, Ray doesn’t know what’s real and what’s not – but he’s on a mission to find out.

MOFFIE: The year is 1981 and South Africa’s white mi­nor­ity govern­ment is em­broiled in a con­flict on the south­ern An­golan bor­der. Like all white boys over the age of 16, Ni­cholas van der Swart must com­plete two years of com­pul­sory mil­i­tary ser­vice to de­fend the apartheid regime. The threat of com­mu­nism and the swart gevaar (black dan­ger) is at an all-time high. But, that’s not the only dan­ger Ni­cholas faces. He must sur­vive the brutish­ness of the army –some­thing that be­comes even more dif­fi­cult when a con­nec­tion is sparked be­tween him and a fel­low re­cruit. Based on the novel by An­dré Carl van der Merwe.

Based on the novel, of the same name, by Jane Austen.

RICHARD JEWELL: The world will know his name. And the truth. What hap­pens when what is re­ported as fact ob­scures the truth? “There is a bomb in Cen­ten­nial Park. You have 30 min­utes.”

The world is first in­tro­duced to Richard Jewell as the se­cu­rity guard who re­ports find­ing the de­vice at the 1996 At­lanta bomb­ing, his re­port mak­ing him a hero whose swift ac­tions save count­less lives. But, within days, the law en­force­ment wannabe be­comes the FBI’s num­ber one sus­pect, vil­i­fied by press and pub­lic, his life ripped apart. Reach­ing out to in­de­pen­dent, anti-es­tab­lish­ment at­tor­ney Wat­son Bryant, Jewell staunchly pro­fesses his in­no­cence. Bryant finds he’s out of his depth as he fights the com­bined pow­ers of the FBI,

GBI and APD to clear his client’s name while keep­ing Jewell from trust­ing the very peo­ple try­ing to de­stroy him. Based on Amer­i­can Night­mare: The Bal­lad of Richard Jewell by Marie Bren­ner.
