As Ipeleng and Thato search for answers, so does girl next door Mandisa who quits her steady job to follow a dream. Her bold move weighs heavily on her relationship with her live-in boyfriend, hustler Thabang, whose promising potential must now translate into real tangible success. Can true love survive against all odds?
