On a lovely Sunday afternoon in Johannesburg, Keniloe (Tony Kgoroge) wanders in a park. He meets Fatima (Fatima Hersi), a Somali woman brought to tears as she tells him of the suffering that led her to seek refuge in South Africa. Just as he's getting to know his new friend, she disappears.

He becomes intrigued by Fatima's stories of war and exile and begins to meet her regularly. But one day Fatima doesn't show up, and Kenilwe feels compelled to find her.

With this film, Matabane introduces a fascinating genre to South African film. The film's artful blend of documentary and drama produces an absorbing insight into the reality of displacement for many of the new citizens attracted to the new South Africa.
