Moratiwa is an aspiring novelist with writer’s block. She hasn’t had much luck with love ever since her ex-boyfriend went out to buy milk and never came back. She now runs a second-hand bookstore in the hippest, most vibrant part of the new Johannesburg. Sadly, in the glamorous world of “it” girls and boys, books are not ‘a thing.’
Tired of having a recluse as a best friend, Tashaka convinces Moratiwa to party up a storm at a new club in the city, where Moratiwa meets South Africa’s no. 1 celebrity model, Nat. They exchange small talk, and Moratiwa isn’t impressed that Nat doesn’t read books. As she tells Tashaka: “He’s a model, what would we talk about?” Tashaka replies: “Who says you have to talk?”
Two different worlds collide in a side of Johannesburg that is rarely seen: The City of Gold as a City of Love. Will they or won’t they?
