Sara se Geheim 3

Sara Abrahams, weighed down heavily by a secret she has been keeping for 35 years in order to save the life of her eldest son (Johan, better known as Johnny), is the person that ties the Cloete, Kiewiets and Vermeulen families together.

Sara does not only keep her own secrets, but also those of her children.

At the end of Season 2, Maggie accidentally shot her son Kelvin (Conway October).

And not long before that, Maggie and her sister Lizzie (Quanita Adams) discovered that their mother Sara (June van Merch) had been keeping a secret from them for years: their brother, Johnny (Dawid Minnaar), is alive.

Season 3 picks up where the second season left off: the dramatic moment where Maggie lays with Calvin in her arms, which impacts on Sara's entire family.

Maggie's ex, Ricky (Brendon Daniels), has appeared and told her eldest son, Aiden (Marlo Minnaar), that he is his real father.

In the new season Johnny keeps nagging Sara to let him see his birth certificate, but Sara knows that it is that very birth certificate which holds an even bigger secret.

Ebert (Andre Weideman) is in mourning over the death of his wife and feels guilty that he assisted her in committing suicide, to such a degree that he starts losing touch with reality.

Aiden and Inge (Lise-Marié Richardson) still have feelings for each other, despite the misgivings of their families. But will Aiden be able to focus on a relationship, when his family is on the brink of falling apart?

The main characters still reside in the Cape Town suburbs of Athlone and Durbanville.

This season, the series also pays a visit to Tant Marie's (Margot Luyt) farm in Stellenbosch, as well as to the Elgin valley, for pastor Benjamin (Keeno-Lee Hector) and Lizzie's honeymoon.

But will Lizzie be able to enjoy her honeymoon when she finds out that her nephew has been shot? And will Sara survive the news that her daughter shot her grandson?

Now she is faced with a massive dilemma - should she protect her child by helping her to hide or should she hand her over to the police?
