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?
