      Tired of having a recluse as a best friend, Tashaka (Ziqubu) convinces her to party up a storm at a new club in the city; it is here that she meets South Africa’s no.1 celebrity model Nat Masilo (Maponyane) or as she nicknames him “The 45 Foot Man” on account of a huge billboard in which he features (in)conveniently situated directly opposite her bookshop.

      They exchange small talk and Moratiwa isn’t impressed that Nat does not read books. As she tells Tashaka: “He’s a model, what would we talk about?” Tashaka replies: “Who says you have to talk?. Against all the odds, Nat begins to court Moratiwa.

Will they or won’t they? As Moratiwa says to Nat: “I am writing a love story.” Nat says: “Will they get together?” Moratiwa replies ‘I haven’t written the ending yet “.
