Synopsis

Nomakaya, a disillusioned policewoman haunted by the memory of a boy's death, must decide between the city and her rural home when the protection of her own child is placed under threat.

Her traditionalist father, now too weak to look after him, journeys the long distance to Johannesburg to convince her to return.

It is through a broken and lost street child, Moses, that she is able to find the strength in herself to forgive, and resume her responsibilities as a mother.
