Gomora stars Katlego Danke as Thathi, a spoiled trophy wife whose posh Sandton life is stripped away in an instant.
With no money and no job, Thathi is forced to pull her teenage kids out of their private schools and enrol them in a public school in Alexandra.
They also have to move back in with her mother, Mam’Sonto (played by Connie Chiume), a woman whose strict standards and grandmotherly care for her family mask her true nature as the queen of crime in Alexandra.
The all-star cast also includes Themba Ndaba, Zolisa Xaluva, Ama Qamata and Thembi Seete.
Gomora airs on Mondays to Fridays at 19h30 on Mzansi Magic and is also available to stream on Showmax.
