Life has a way of sometimes taking a strange turn. For Tom Niemandt (Armand Aucamp), it all begins with the death of his grandmother Betty, who leaves him her guest house in a small Karoo town called Merweville. He doesn't want the place! What should he do with it?

Unfortunately, it isn't his choice and he is forced to stay in the village. As a Cape hipster he can think of nothing worse. Things change, however, when he meets his grandmother's book club.

And of course, the mysterious girl he meets in a field. What is she doing here, in the middle of nowhere?
