Afgrond (Abyss) is a South African, Afrikaans-language television drama series which revolves around fate and the choices that five women make while each is fighting for their existence that brings them together.

Each has to make a decision that will change their lives.

Julia Cilliers (Jana Kruger) is a psychologist who struggles to process her guilt arising out of her child's death.

This compels her to stay in a difficult marriage with Basson Brink (Stian Bam), the head of Cilliers, Mouton & Molefe - a successful law firm in Cape Town.

Hannelie Fourie (Marguerite van Eeden) approaches Julia for psychological help because she is being sexually abused at work.

Julia is forced to make a difficult choice that will ultimately free her.

She decides to take the job but her experience in the city turns out to be a nightmare.
