Thirteen years in captivity

2016-09-25 14:00

Johannesburg - Tense psychological drama Thirteen follows the story of Ivy Moxam, a 26-year-old woman learning to live again after 13 years in captivity. When Ivy escapes the cellar that’s been her prison since she was abducted, it’s just the start of her story.

She’s beginning to pick up the threads of a life half-lived, but they’re about to be pulled apart again. Her captor is on the run and, as cracks appear in Ivy’s account of her ordeal, the police begin to doubt her motives. What happened in that cellar? And can Ivy really be trusted?

The series has been met with acclaim, with Common Sense Media stating: “Creepy, measured and mesmerising, this drama takes a clichéd premise, and makes it fresh and absorbing with finely drawn characters played by magnetic actors.”
