In a remote corner of South Africa, untouched by 'transformation', is the small town of Vlenterhoek. It is in this backwater that the lives of three returning residents intersect. After a forty-year absence Leah, now a widow, arrives from Canada to visit her sisters; Opposition MP Rebecca returns to see if she can forgive her father; and Frikkie, once a star rugby player, turns up with a money-making scheme. In the process of dealing with their own personal crises, they discover the truth about themselves.
