Shanti Naidoo is a typical Type-A personality. Always on the move, going out of her way to please people, and overcompensating for her perceived inadequacies by continually cooking up a storm in the kitchen. Her life would be just fine, except that her neighbour, Jennifer Kandasamy, always seems to hold the upper hand! Somehow, Jennifer seems to outdo whatever Shanti does, and life appears to be a constant battle of trying to keep up.
When Jennifer realises that her daughter is in love with Shanti's son, she is determined to break them up. But, in order to do that, she will have to enlist her rival’s help!
