Lakshmi, portrayed by Lillete Dubey and Gabriel Isaac, played by Rueben Naidoo, have been happily married for almost 45 years. While out cake tasting, in preparations for their 45th anniversary part, Gabriel has a heart attack and dies, forcing all the children to come home earlier than planned. Three of their four children haven’t been home in 5 years. The only child they see is Janet Isaac, played by Leeanda Reddy, their 2nd born who lives with them.
After losing her husband in a tragic accident, she moved back home and has been the only child taking care of her parents together with her teenage daughter Kiara, played by Kiara Govender, who has decided that now would be the perfect time to start acting out. Janet finally found love again with Oliver, played by Jonathan Boynton-Lee, but somehow is struggling to move forward and now she must juggle her unpredictable siblings coming home for the funeral with an assortment of partners, children and issues in tow.
Melissa Isaac, portrayed by Jailoshini Naidoo, the 1st born, married someone who she thought was the man of her dreams, played by Pranesh Maharaj, until it became miserable. Her only daughter, Candice, portrayed by Zakeeya Patel, grew up in this madness becoming a young single mother of 2 children and is now looking for love in all the wrong places. Riki Isaac, played by Rahul Brijnath, is the 3rd child and only son and like most sons, he is the apple of his mother’s eye. His financial success lead to excessive drinking, a divorce, gambling and debt. His ongoing hustling makes him cross paths with a colourful gangster, Babes, portrayed by Tumi Morake.
Actress Kajal Bagwandeen, in the role of Amy, the last born, ran off at a young age and married a man 10 years older than her. Faced with losing everything in the divorce and potentially having to move back home, Amy has concocted a plan to have a baby, to secure her future.
Together, this crazy family has 3 days to go, in order to survive each other – under one roof, before they spread their father’s ashes and part ways again. As the siblings re-examine their shared history and their tattered relationships, they learn how to handle life, when everything seems to go wrong.
It is about family, the choices we make and finding redemption. You may recognize someone you know in the story… or you may even recognize yourself…
