Netflix has debuted a new local drama, “The Valley of a Thousand Hills,” which takes the spotlight as our movie of the week.

Originally debuted at the DIFF earlier this year, the LGBTQ movie gives a clear picture of two women who have to go against their culture and fight for their love.

Nosipho (Mandisa Vilakazi) is from a conservative village and has to choose between living a lie to be the perfect Zulu daughter or risking death for true love. His father is a well-respected man in the community and has chosen a husband for her. She is stuck between marrying or fighting for her soulmate, Thenjiwe (Sibongokuhle Nkosi).

The film, directed by Bonie Sithebe, also stars Glen Gabela and Wiseman Mncube.

The movie is now streaming on Netflix.
