Jeanette has decided to study law while her boyfriend is completing his national military service. They are set to be engaged when he returns. During her summer holiday with her father in the Free State, a random act of kindness by an attractive Indian man sparks an unexpected love affair. Set in 1970s apartheid South Africa it is against the law to have an interracial relationship and they have to meet in secret. In the doomed love affair we get a sharp reminder of just how apartheid destroyed lives. This film breaks new ground in terms of being released both in South Africa and India through the involvement of production company Utkarsh Entertainment and producer Rajiv Terwadkar.
