She remembers the sacrifices her parents have made for her, and desperately wants to give them a better life.

Thuli loves Pearl, at the same time she is envious of her beauty, status and her man, Ayo. Pearl botches a crucial delivery and, spotting her weakness, Thuli betrays Pearl and takes on the delivery and gains Ayo's respect, and love in the process.
