Don't Push Your Granny While She's Shaving

Synopsis

We meet Mel, a young attractive blonde, on her wedding day. Within the hour her new husband, Fred, is dead. She must quickly find a husband to present to her grandmother, who is dying of cancer. In a stable relationship Mel stands to inherit Granny's money. Sipho, the photographer at her wedding, quickly steps into dead Fred's shoes.

When, a few weeks later, Granny dies and the Will is read Sipho is announced the benefactor! It is now up to Mel to find a way to get her hands on what she considers to be rightfully hers. This involves finding another dead body to pull off her plan.

Set in the new South Africa, this film is a black comedy, and while every scene ends with an amusing twist, it is a film that provokes 'thoughtful' laughter.
