Bro­ken-hearted busi­ness­woman Sonti (Pearl Maimela) needs to face her past. She took the first bus back to Tur­floop af­ter her crook ex-boyfriend Le­hasa (Cedric Fourie) blind­sided her and stole her com­pany in June 2017 and Pearl says that “she is dev­as­tated! She feels lost and didn’t see her life tak­ing such a down­ward spi­ral”.

Sonti’s sis­ter Mapitsi (Mo­gau Motl­hatswi) has good in­ten­tions and phones Sonti’s ex-boyfriend Babeile (Matthews Manamela) on Wed­nes­day 5 July. “Sonti finds the good-guy cop in her lounge on Thurs­day 6 July but doesn’t han­dle it well,” says Pearl. “She’s an­gry be­cause she told Mapitsi that she doesn’t want to see him,” es­pe­cially be­cause he’s got a num­ber of ques­tions for her af­ter their break-up ear­lier this year.

There’s nowhere for Sonti to hide on Fri­day 7 July. “Babeile wants clo­sure, he needs to un­der­stand why Sonti left him for an­other man,” says Pearl, but Sonti doesn’t know how to re­act, so she gives him a limp apol­ogy. Babeile was ready to start a new life with Sonti as his wife in Fe­bru­ary 2017 but “she wasn’t ready to get mar­ried,” adds the ac­tress. “She wanted ad­ven­ture and ex­cite­ment but she didn’t think that Le­hasa would hurt her like he did.”

Babeile knows what’s com­ing and stops Sonti be­fore she can even ask for a sec­ond chance. “He was hurt when she dumped him and he doesn’t want that hurt again,” ex­plains Pearl. That’s the last-gasp chance for Sonti and she packs her bags later that day, ready to leave Tur­floop and her love-life in her rear-view mir­rors. “It’s her last scene for now,” says Pearl. “But I’m cer­tain that she will be back!” Pearl is tak­ing a break af­ter a hectic few months of shoot­ing but hasn’t left.
