"As a little girl Nthabiseng liked to watch her father fixing cars. Before too long she was also fixing cars. She dreamed of making her own car from parts of other cars. But everything was not well in her family. She soon learned that you canít have everything without paying a price." This is a sad morality tale of a woman who puts all her energies into her first love - the car - and only realizes too late the price she has had to pay.
