During the last teasing episode Faan accidentally runs into the Doctor's (Deon Lotz) wife, Beatrice (Nicola Hanekom), a woman who was raised in Pretoria, but now lives in this one horse town because of a secret she and her husband have to hide.

This is an all-round top notch production and also one of the most awarded Afrikaans films of all time.
