AGULHASVLAKTE

Milly, a florist, battles her entire life against elements that threaten the biodiversity of Agulhasvlakte, her birthplace. Her sister Amy, a dynamic social media star and typical city dweller arrives unexpectedly. Amy is not well. She is losing herself in her incessant pursuit of success and was diagnosed with a mental illness. A moving story about two sisters who struggle with issues facing young people today: finding their true identity within their environment, family, and the modern world.
