A young girl commits herself to finding peace for her brother’s restless spirit. In this story, we meet a sheltered young girl, but soon we are captivated by a woman’s strength and resilience. Bayephi was awarded the Standard Bank Silver Ovation Award at this year’s National Arts Festival. It is a layered and complex story about loss, recollection and closure.
