    • A romantic comedy where two doctors with very different approaches to medicine come into conflict over a patient they deeply care about. Mainstream medical practitioner, Dr Themba Nkosi, is shocked when one of his patients tells him that she will be consulting a homeopath. Insulted and mistrusting, Themba sets out to study his competitor, Dr Sithole and discredit her practice. But the more he gets to know the enigmatic Dr Sithole the more he grows to like and respect her. Ultimately, he must confront the painful past that has led him to be so stuck in his ways that it threatens to derail his budding romance with Dr Sithole.
