Season 1

Three teenage boys grapple with tough conflicts as they navigate their journey to manhood in a Limpopo township. A hit and run accident throws 16-year-old Tbose Maputla and his friend Kwaito Seakamela into incredibly challenging situations, testing their friendship to the limit.

The story begins on the day of Thabo 'Tbose' Maputla's 16th birthday. A day Zamokuhle 'Kwaito' Seakamela discovers he's won a trip to London. It is also the day Katlego 'Kat' Petersen attempts a tiny rebellion.

The boys are young and happening, fun and unpredictable. Their massive craving to be men is the engine that drives their behaviour.

Tbose's parents throw him a small 16th birthday party at home, but his friends have other celebration plans.

When the festivities are over and the Limpopo light of day dawns over Turfloop Township, a horrific discovery is made; an upstanding member of the community, Ben Kunutu, has been killed in a hit and run accident.

A wave of shock reverberates through the community. Slowly the safe, unique and harmonious township of Turfloop splits itself into numerous fragments of suspicion, mistrust and secrecy.

The police find themselves investigating more than just a hit and run accident. They are drawn into the trail of a syndicate that operates on the roadsides. Someone in Turfloop knows exactly what happened to Ben Kunutu and they are doing everything they can to hide it.

Lead roles are Clement Maosa (Kwaito), Cornet Mamabolo (Tbose) and Patrick Seleka (Katlego).
