New psychological thriller set in the Eastern Cape 'Dam' premiers on Showmax
The new series is a psychological thriller set in a small-town farming community in the Eastern Cape, where everything is not quite as it seems.
The plot centres around Yola Fischer (played by actress Lea Vivier) who returns to the farmhouse where she grew up following her father’s death.
Yola returns to the local village after having spent six years from Chile in South America.
Spirits in the house start tormenting her - or is the haunting only in her head? Soon after her return, she’s confronted by an unspeakable past.
Vivier says her character wonders if the spirits that she hears are real or if she's losing her mind

The twisty eight-part series was written and directed by four-time Safta winner Alex Yazbek.
The cast and crew started shooting in September last year over a period of eight weeks.
Vivier chats to CapeTalk host Pippa Hudson about the filming for this chilling psychological thriller and her personal journey as an actress.
