A young lady hardened by betrayal and loss turns her back on her home when she starts drowning in tradition. She finds herself in another country, but soon learns that love and loss are interchangeable. The story starts in the patriarchal heartbeat of Tsholotsho and carries on in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe and spills over to the heart of Johannesburg. It details the struggles of widows in the black community, the plight of immigrants, the exploitation of the fast-food industry and searches the lines imposed on Africans. Some of the issues highlighted the abuse of women within their marriages and even when they become widows. The exploitation of immigrant women. The social hierarchy of immigrants in South Africa. The socioeconomic state of Zimbabwe, particularly Bulawayo from 2008 to 2019. The tribal imbalances and marginalization in Zimbabwe.
