Pending a move overseas with the woman who raised her and her mother’s ex-employer, Lisa, Busi’s visa gets denied and she is forced to move back to Alexander Township to live with her domestic worker mother, Pretty. Busi who is accustomed to a westernised and privileged life with Lisa, has a hard time accepting her changed circumstances and the implications that these have on her self-conception. To maintain priority on her education, Lisa has her enrolled at a new elite school in Sandton. However, when she gets to the school the difference in social class between her and her peers becomes evident and she’s left feeling like an outsider. Hope is soon restored though when she meets Matt, the school’s golden boy, and immediately falls for him. Not long after that, she’s again intimidated by the large number of girls after him, amongst these and more notably the school’s It-girl, Amy, who seems more primed to be with Matt.
