A young woman (Michelle Eva Ranaïvojaona) works as a prison guard – a job that makes her think about her father (Eugene Raphael Ranaïvojaona) who is himself a convicted murderer. She starts to imagine him as a serial killer, determining his victims’ fate by throwing dice.
Zaho Zay completely missed me. It changed dialogues for voice-over, which I hate, but the biggest issue for me was that I just never connected to it or got into the plot at all (in fact, I wouldn’t have been able to sum the plot up without reading up on it again). I started to nod off repeatedly, which didn’t help things at all. So I finally just left (although I think only 15 minutes or so before the end). That was a complete fail for me.
