Andrew Mudge writes and directs this South African-set drama. Leaving his home in Johannesburg, Atang (Zenzo Ngqobe) travels to the rural region of Lesotho to visit his seriously ill father (Jerry Phele), only to arrive too late. Having grown up in the area, Atang falls in love with childhood friend Dineo (Nozipho Nkelemba), who now works as a teacher, and when he returns to Johannesburg following his dad's funeral he resolves to save enough money to marry her. But he is again forced to deal with the consequences of the area's prevalent HIV when Dineo's father (Jerry Mofokeng) moves the family to an even more isolated area, leaving Atang to rely on a young orphan boy (Lebohang Ntsane) to help track her down.
