Imagine a world where the showering of tears to calm the soul is no different from the rain that nurtures the soil. MAX AND MONA is a coal black comedy about a village boy with extraordinary mourning skills, who journeys to a daunting city to become a ?white doctor?. But his riff-raff uncle, Norman; a razor sharp gangster, a transvestite mortician, a beautiful girl; and a sacred sacrificial goat, ensure that he receives a baptism of fire. Six funerals later Max finally comes to grips with the ever-turbulent Johannesburg.
