Synopsis

A young teacher from Oudtshoorn, Cybil Ferreira, will do anything in her power to ensure the success of her project at the small farm school, Kalfieskraal. Cybil dreams about establishing a centre at the school that will provide a safe haven for the local children, who are struggling under the influence of alcoholism in the Swartberg Valley, especially over weekends.

The problem is, Cybil’s dream is in danger of collapsing before it even gets off the ground. The land Kalfieskraal is situated on is for sale, and none of the possible buyers are interested in her project. Not even her wealthy fiancée, ostrich farmer Meyer Labuschagne, could be bothered about her project or the fate of the children.

Cybil’s last chance is to convince the director of the Global Upliftment Fund, currently visiting the Klein Karoo to look for projects to support, to fund her project.

Then Frans Coetzee comes into our story. A filmmaker with a broken heart, he is in the Klein Karoo with his team to make a documentary about social upliftment work in the area - and in the process hopefully forget about women, love, and all the baggage that comes with it.

Then Cybil and Frans meet, and their worlds are turned completely upside down.

If Cybil decides to follow her heart, will she have to give up her dreams, or is it true love that will make her dreams come true?

And is Frans willing to take another chance on love?

Oorsig

‘n Jong onderwyseres van Oudtshoorn, Cybil Ferreira, sal enigiets in haar vermoë doen om te verseker dat haar projek voortgaan by die plaasskooltjie, Kalfieskraal. Sy droom daaroor om ’n sentrum te vestig waar die omgewing se kinders, wat ly onder die invloed van alkoholisme in die Swartberg Vallei, veral oor naweke ’n veilige hawe kan vind.

Cybil se droom is egter in gevaar nog voor dit regtig van die grond af kan kom: die grond waarop Kalfieskraal staan is te koop en geen van die moontlike kopers stel belang in die projek nie. Nie eens Cybil se skatryk verloofde, die volstruisboer Meyer Labuschagne, gee veel om oor die toekoms van die projek of die kinders nie.

Cybil se laaste hoop is om die direkteur van die Global Upliftment Fund, wat tans in die Klein Karoo soek na projekte om te ondersteun, te oortuig om haar projek te befonds.

So kom Frans Coetzee in die prentjie in.  Frans is ’n filmmaker met ’n gebreekte hart,  wat in die Klein Karoo is om saam met sy span ’n dokumentêr te maak oor opheffingswerk in die omgewing - en hopelik in die proses te vergeet van liefde, vrouens, en al die moeilikheid wat daarmee saam kom.

Maar dan kruis Cybil en Frans se paadjies, en beide se wêrelde word totaal omver gegooi.

As Cybil haar hart volg, beteken dit sy moet haar drome opgee, of sal ware liefde juis haar drome vlerke gee?

En is Frans bereid om liefde nog ’n kans te gee?
