Season 2

Jozi - the city of Johannesburg - is well known around the continent and the world for being the city paved with gold.

People from all over the country and beyond the border converge here in search of the city's wealth, in the hope to lead them to a better life. Some succeed and some don't. This is the story about these people.

The homeless people have a very different and harsh reality of the city. They have been displaced, harassed and abused, and find out very quickly and painfully that the streets are not what they thought they would be.

But this is not a depressing series about the trials and tribulations of displaced people. There are many other characters with whom our main characters interact, including lovers, family, employers and friends, through whom we will see many different sides of the city.

This season will not show hopeless characters living in the street, but enthusiastic and positive characters living in the city.

The show is directed by Rolie Nikiwe (Tsha-Tsha) Akin Omotoso (God is African, Rifle Road) and first timers uZanenkosi and Zamo Mkwanazi; and produced by Robbie Thorpe, Omotoso and Kgomotso Matsunyane. The series was written by Craig Freimond and Kgomotso Matsunyane.

Original music is by Zwai Bala.
