Series co-creator Portia Gumede
A new four part mini-series, based on a play by Bongi Ndaba which had a successful run at the Market Theatre.
The series is produced by Paw Paw films and conceived and created by Portia Gumede and Bongi Ndaba.
The scenario: They were married off at a younger age, gave birth at the age of 15 and kicked out because they were thought to be barren. Everything they did was considered not good enough so they ran away to the unknown.
The series introduces us to Nontobeko, Lefika and Yoliswa as teenagers in a rural upbringing where all their choices are made for them. They travel to the city as they become women and the demons from their past come knocking.
The main themes the drama are that of discrimination against rural women who are barren, who have too much ambition, self worth and a will to find sense of self in a world that doesn’t take kindly to women with the will to survive and better themselves.
The show stars Linda Sokhulu as Lefika, Gugu Masondo as Nontobeko, Lerato Moloisane as Yoliswa, as well as Melusi Yeni, Baby Cele, Elliot Ngubane and Mbulelo Ndlazilwana.
