Love, Loss and Life
Rukayya Bibi Hussain is a hard working and stubborn Indian who longs for her homeland and often questions what she is doing on the tip of Africa. At thirty five, her daughter Sadia is struggling to reconcile her South African and Indian identities, while Sadia's own daughter, eleven year old Aadila, is a girl who has some difficult questions of her own. Is her mother lying to her about her father's death? Why won't she tell her what really happened?
Gradually, the past merges with the present as we unfold what happens through their lives, uncovering the secrets people keep, the words they swallow and the emotions they elect to mute. For this family, the scent of tragedy is always threatening. Eventually it will bring this family together. If not, it will tear them apart.
