Jong Joe en Anna (albei 13) raak hartstogtelik verlief op mekaar. Maar dan tree die lewe tussenbeide en word hulle teen hul sin van mekaar geskei. Amper tien jaar later loop hulle mekaar weer onverwags raak, maar hul sterk band vanuit hul kinderdae is verlore. Sal hulle die lewe se baie hindernisse kan oorkom, en sal hulle ooit weer saam kan wees?

Dit is ’n storie oor lewe, grootword, regte en verkeerde keuses maak, vashou aan dit waarin jy glo, ouerskap en hantering van die dood. Wat egter die sterkste uitstaan, is die liefde.

Hierdie storie verken die moeilikhede wat tieners en studente daagliks in die gesig staar en leer ook jonk en oud om in liefde te glo ten spyte van hartseer.

Everyone in this family looks different. Dad is tall and dark. Mum has light brown hair with green eyes. Some of the children have straight hair; others have curls.
