His friends warn him. They talk about the clash of cultures, about dreaming. They talk about gold-diggers and waking up. Nonsense, of course. The beautiful young actress andile is modern, independent and successful: she’s the strong woman he never dared to dream about. The Dutch director, working on a play in South Africa, is falling in love. And Zandile loves him back.
He knows he finally has found his peace when she follows him to The Netherlands. Zandile, her son Thabo and he, together on the couch, homey and warm. Language problems? Cultural differences? Racist people? Humiliations in getting a proper passport? Nothing to worry about. Their love is invincible. But there’s something they both didn’t count on: fate. Because you can’t just have a crush on a Zulu girl, have her sit on your Dutch couch, and think everything is going to be alright.
