How to ruin Christmas

Tumi is up to her antics again, and this time it’s killing someone…allegedly.

In the first five minutes, she swears at a child. There’s also a proposal at a crematorium, Shadrack and Succulent are closer than ever, and by the end, somebody eats cremation dust. 

It’s not entirely Tumi’s fault this time, we promise, but in typical Tumi style, she destroys and then rebuilds again.

Christmas in many African cities is never complete without people going home a.k.a. the village, or township.

This is an endearing and heartwarming tale about family and the roots that build them. Log on to Showmax and enjoy streaming this from anywhere.

It’s a funny story that follows the usual Christmas theme of wacky families and in-laws. In true Christmas movie fashion, the movie follows a woman who has to deal with her daughter’s engagement to a less-than-ideal son-in-law and his own domineering mother.
