    • Synopsis
    • Thula is a charming, well-known radio personality who is living the life in Jozi, when she gets a call from home to say that her mother has died. When she gets to her rural farm home for the funeral, we learn that her mother is actually the white woman who raised her, after her husband had an affair with a local black woman and became pregnant with Thula. After many years of being away from home, Thula is now forced to face her estranged relationships with her older white sister, her activist black brother and her biological black mother. To make matters worse, Thula learns that her older sister is planning on selling the family farm where she grew up and her older black brother is fighting the sale, claiming that the land belongs to the black community. A bitter battle ensues between the farm owners and labourers and Thula is put in a difficult position of having to choose one side of her family over the other.
