Dolf is a regular guy from a modest background in Knysna. He is content with his normal small town existence, his group of friends and his eccentric grandparents. His life is thrown upside down when he falls for a beautiful stranger Stephanie, a somewhat wealthy visitor to the sleepy coastal resort. What she has not been honest about, is that she is engaged to the Prince of Lichtenstein, but has a cold feet, and is hiding out in Knysna. Stephanie is drawn to the simplicity of Dolf's life and yearns for her own to be as uncomplicated and away from the limelight. When the lie becomes apparent, Dolf is conflicted. He is in love with Stephanie, but also feels an inferiority complex come to the fore. Will he fight for her or give up? He may not be in Prince Rafael's social or financial league, but Dolf can offer Stephanie a life that she can identify with, free from the burden of royal expectations and the international media microscope. She is just a girl wanting a guy to love her and for... Written by Anonymous

A typical South African Gem
21 February 2018 | by gmacd-55237See all my reviews

I remember the days when feel good movies by South African directors made us all feel good. This is one of those original feel good movies. decent scripting, videography and acting as expected. A real friday night special if you are Afrikaans or want to experience some Afrikaans culture.
