Drama series set in the fictional Karoo town of Maanhaarsdrif, which is populated by interesting and mysterious residents.
In Maanhaarsdrif there is also a fixation with stars and stargazing, while some inhabitants are even moonstruck (proverbially speaking).
Annabel (Tinarie van Wyk-Loots), a journalist, returns to Maanhaarsdrif after receiving death threats in Cape Town when she worked on a story about corruption.
Her father, Frans (Albert Maritz) and her meter maid sister, Ragel-Lee (Erica Wessels), still live in Maanhaarsdrif, while her childhood sweetheart, Stian (Jacques Bessenger) is also still in town.
Annabel feels like she was never gone, but there is also something different about Maanhaarsdrif.
Time didn't stand still and a couple - Luan and Ruan (Neels van Jaarsveld and Terence Bridgett) - bought the local hotel and did it up in the hope of attracting stargazing tourists.
There is also Maanhaarsdrif's enthusiastic mayor, Ivy (June van Merch) and her bestie Lettie (Joanie Combrink), who regularly butt heads with each other and others.
But old memories soon come to haunt Annabel and there are a whole lot of skeletons hidden in each character's closet.
Maanhaarsdrif may be light years away from Annabel's life as a journalist, but the effects of the publication of her shocking articles follow her into the Karoo, with terrifying consequences for her and her loved ones.
Other characters include the newspaper editor, Peter (David Isaacs); the schizophrenic hobo Bliksem (Carel Nel); the down-to-Earth but rich motorcylist Charlie (Albert Pretorius); the hotel's barman, Randall (Jarrid Geduld); and the manic depressive writer, Lukas (Andre Odendaal).
There's also the waitress Gina (Tarryn Wyngaard), Kasper (Gerben Kamper) and the Russian butcher Petrov (Grant Swanby); while Kwêla presenter Hannes van Wyk guest stars as himself.
The series was filmed in Bonnievale, Cape Town and Calvinia.

At the conclusion of Season 4, a demon had possessed the body of Ray, leaving Constantine to wrest Ray's soul from the hands of Astra Logue, the girl he failed to rescue from Hell years ago.
Meanwhile, up in our world, Sara and Ava dealt with a magical creature-fueled paranoia, while the WaveRider was turned into a Noah's Ark for various unruly monsters and magical creatures.
In the end, the Legends would have to sacrifice one of their own.
But in attempting to change her future, Zari accidentally changed not just the past she shared with Nate Heywood, but fundamentally changed who the Legends are in Season 5.
Can our team go back to who they were this season? Can the Legends stop the literal Hell that Astra unleashes on the world?
And what happens when the Legends awaken the original guardians of Time who wish to erase everything the Legends have "screwed up for the better" over the past four seasons?
Season 5 kicks off with a "Crisis on Infinite Earths" special - the sixth annual Arrowverse crossover event featuring episodes of Supergirl, Batwoman, The Flash, Arrow and Legends of Tomorrow.

The Real Skinny follows Sarah and Chris, who, after undergoing gastric bypass surgery and losing an enormous amount of weight, must now undergo post-bariatric surgery to remove the huge folds of loose, stretched-out skin that has been left behind on their bodies.
This special chronicles the journey of the couple's transformation: the pre-surgery jitters and fears, the relief immediately afterwards, and their hopes for the future as they get used to their new bodies.
The programme serves as a reminder of the wonder of the human body, our emotional connection and the lengths to which some of us go in order to live a full, active life.
