Cape Town – The trailer for award-winning producer Bianca Isaac’s (Umilio, Swartwater, Kruispad, Getroud Met Rugby) directorial debut has just been released. 

The family comedy 3 Days to Go tells the story of adult siblings who, after the sudden death of their father, are forced to return to their childhood home – with an assortment of partners, children and issues in tow. 

They need to survive three days in each other’s company, under one roof, before they spread their father’s ashes and part ways, setting the stage for some hilariously funny moments and deeply touching ones. 

This universal story of family, healing and forgiveness – written by Isaac – boasts a strong and talented cast. 


Bollywood actress Lillette Dubey (The Second-Best Marigold Hotel, Best Marigold Hotel), came to South Africa specifically to portray the role of matriarch Lakshmi Isaac, who loses her husband of 45 years unexpectedly. 

Leeanda Reddy (Isidingo, Mr. Bones 2) can be seen in the role of second-born, Janet, who was living with her parents at the time of her father’s death and has to juggle love, a rebelish teen and sibling tension, as well as coming to terms with her own sorrow. 

Well-known radio, stage and television personality, Jailoshini Naidoo (Keeping Up With The Kandasamys) is Melissa, the oldest of the four Isaac siblings, who is stuck in an emotionally and physically abusive marriage.

Kajal Bagwandeen (Madiba, Jozi) is Amy – the baby of the family who is on the brink of getting divorced and stands to lose everything. 

The only son and gambling addict of the family, Riki, is played by Rahul Brijnath (The Indian Detective).

Other cast members include: Kiara Govender, Zakeeya Patel, Pranesh Maharaj, Ashish Gangarpersad, Tumi Morake and Top Billing presenter Jonathan Boynton-Lee. 


The film releases in SA cinemas on Friday, 25 January.
