Dit Wat Stom Is is a South African, Afrikaans-language television drama series created by Franz Marx and produced by The Directors Team which revolves around a young heiress - 20-year old Elri Dekker - whose life seems to be comfortably mapped out for her... until tragedy strikes.
She's blonde, beautiful and the heiress to a multi-million rand company. But her interest lies with fashion and boyfriends rather than with a mighty business empire.
Her elder sister's pending wedding to a wealthy doctor is a thorn in her side that she'd like to get over and done with, so that she can continue her quiet, carefree life in a wealthy suburb with her dad and younger brother.
Jan Meyer is a student who's willing to drop his studies so he can raise the baby he fathered with his ex-girlfriend, Melanie. The only problem is that Melanie refuses to allow Jan to have anything to do with the child that she wants to give up for adoption - she swears he is not the father of the child.
When tragedy strikes, Elri soon realises that her life of luxury has been nothing but an illusion. Then her and Jan's paths cross and they become so intertwined that there is no turning back.
Dit Wat Stom Is was created by Franz Marx and produced by The Directors Team for M-Net Original Productions, with executive producers Deon van Zyl and Laurence Lurie. The screenplay was written by Franz Marx and Riana Wilkens. The supervising producer for kykNET was Marida Swanepoel.
