Thandeka Mkhize is destined for greatness, or at least that’s what she believes. She feels on top of the world when she is accepted to study law at the University of Witwatersrand.
Johannesburg, known as the City of Gold, is where dreams can come true for a young Zulu girl like her.
However, all that glitters is not always gold. Upon arriving in Johannesburg, her cousin introduces her to the party lifestyle, and her naivety comes at a price.
Her peaceful life is soon replaced by police, parties, money, champagne, and the occasional death or two.
Yet, who is counting as long as the money keeps rolling in? All is fair in love and war.
This is the story of a young girl’s journey that might ultimately be her last. The signs that it might end in tears are evident. But you only live once.
Bravado grows the more fun one has.
The need to survive and stay relevant drives Thandeka’s story and the people around her.
