Storyline

Anna Ronquillo (29), a French-Moroccan émigré working illegally in a trendy Cape Town restaurant, is busted by Home Affairs in the middle of a shift. They tell her she has 48 hours in which to gather her possessions and return to France. In an ironic twist of colonial fate, this child of the First World is now not allowed to stay in the Third World. With her bags half-packed, she makes a drastic decision. She makes a personal announcement on a local radio station to Cape Town's bachelors: anyone interested in marrying her should meet at the restaurant the following day. She meets an ideal man but there is one problem. He does not have a South African passport. Now Anna must choose: between marrying for the sake of personal freedom, or loving even if it means having to leave. Written by Anonymous

Now he may wish you to perform ...
