When her sister, Fikile, dies after bravely fighting breast cancer, Anele cannot give in to sadness; she has to ensure that the cultural ceremonies and rituals associated with the burial are performed. Fikile’s husband, Thiza, absent during her dying days, is still nowhere to be found.

As mourners arrive at the house in the township of New Hope for the period of grieving, old family conflicts lurk under the surface.

All the while, Anele is haunted by memories of Fikile, who sacrificed her youth to take over their household; who got involved with her teacher and eventually trapped herself in a marriage with him. Only Anele knows of the chance Fikile had to start over in later years. But then cancer struck.

A betrayal causes Anele’s own support system to crumble, but she still has to care for her mother and for Fikile’s children. Will her life take the same course as Fikile’s? Is her sole purpose ensuring the happiness of others? Or is she allowed to want something more?
