"Botshelo Morapedi o tlogile kwa Gauteng a boela kwa legaeng la bona kwa Botswana.  O tlile le mekgwa ya setoropo e e sa itumediseng kwa Botswana.  On ne a ratana le monna yo o neng a humile ka dikgomo a bidiwa Lesego.  Lesego on ne a rata Botshelo mme a batla gorre e nne mosadi yo o obamelang setso.  Botshelo o ne a setse a tlwaetse go nna le di tsa gagwe.  Lenyalo la bona ga le a ka la nna sebaka.  Go diragala seno fa mafatshe a mabedi a thulana.  Motlhamongwe Lesego o ne a leka go re tlhalosetsa seno."

Life Morapedi returns from the big city to her family home in rural Botswana.  She brings with her the fast ways of the city.  In the village she falls in love with Lesego, a rich cattle owner.  Lesego finds Life exciting, but he also wants a traditional wife.  Life is used to having her own money and her freedom.  Their marriage cannot last, their relationship was bound to end in disaster.  This is a story of what happens when two worlds collide.
