Overcrowded, restless, volatile. A neighbourhood where anything can happen, and life is cheap. But despite the grime and crime, people still stream into Hillbrow desperate for the promise of a better life that comes with big city life. Hillbrow-born and raised, Carte Blanche meets a guardian fighting to keep chaos and lawlessness at bay. With his invisible army of undercover informants and patrollers keeping an ear to the ground, he works to tip the odds in this dog-eat-dog suburb where buildings are hijacked and stripped bare, alcohol and violence flow freely, and drug addicts camp out on the streets. It's a full-time job for a security company working to keep some spaces safe for the areaโ€™s residents and remaining businesses.
