Can love save Stokkies ( Wayne van Rooyen) from him­self? Since his Au­gust 2015 par­don and re­lease from prison, Ver­non “Stokkies” Ja­cobs has been try­ing to go straight but it’s as if he’s car­ry­ing the weight of his past around his neck. “Even though he’s gone through the thing of telling ev­ery­one ‘my name is Ver­non’, they still call him Stokkies and that’s frus­trat­ing. He’s try­ing to prove to those peo­ple that he’s changed,” ex­plains Wayne. So on Thurs­day 9 June, when a beau­ti­ful stranger named Chan­tal (Al­to­vise Lawrence) comes look­ing for Stokkies on her son’s be­half, he seizes the chance that she of­fers him for a fresh start.
