Thandi is only a teenager, ready for anything and ripe enough for love. She is a girl flirting with womanhood and the township beckons. But she still has to find out the dangers when David, the schoolboy Mister Charming, coolly sweeps her off her feet.

As her life spins out of control and beyond her parent’s reach, Thandi has to learn that playing with love may mean playing with her life. The film shows what happens to a township girl when she realizes that falling in love is not simple. The dangers involved are not just unwanted pregnancies. In a time of AIDS, it is about life itself.
