The Van. The myth. The legend.

Van der Merwe’s daughter, Marike, returns home from a gap year in England with a new fiancé, a British medical student. Not only does Van have to come to terms with the fact that his daughter is marrying an Englishman, but he’s also pressured by his bossy, conservative father to put an end to the relationship. This puts Van in a precarious situation, as he must choose between the wrath of his father and losing his daughter. The fireworks really begin when the fiancé’s family arrives on the farm, setting off clashing cultures and a number of side-splitting incidents, as some classic Van Der Merwe jokes play out!
