"Four Corners follows four characters, a reformed prison general, a local cop, a charismatic gang leader and a surgeon back from London and how their lives intersect with a young boy's coming of age in the subculture of the urban youth gangs of South Africa's violent Cape Flats area. [Ian] Gabriel says he wanted to tell a story about the power of family and contrast it with the power of the gangs. 'I chose the metaphor of chess, with its strict rules all played out on the four corners of the chess board, as the main visual concept guiding the evolution of the story in the film. Also the four corners refers to the Number gangs, sabela, a term for a prison cell, and reflects on the four adult lives that are all changed by the coming of age of a young boy, the lead character in the story'.
