Synopsis

POU (PEACOCK) is a South African gothic horror following the journey of a young woman into the dark recesses of the Afrikaner psyche and its compromised past.

ANNA POHL (Tarryn Wyngaard) has grown up in an institutionalised space: a puritanical, Calvinist organisation known simply as The Foundation. Their mission is to provide a place of ‘righteous innocence’ for young women – to allow them to develop away from the ‘corruptions’ of the outside world.  When Anna transgresses The Foundation’s strict moral standards, she is sent away to care for one of its founding members, SAREL CILLIERS (Johan Botha), an Apartheid-era theologian now ailing on his isolated farm.
