In the backdrop of the mysterious and evocative Cederberg mountains, this tale meticulously weaves together a young man's attempt to discover his and his brother's enigmatic wilderness origins and an orphan girl's efforts to comprehend the trauma of her occult past. As they plumb the depths of their personal histories, the people and places in their lives intertwine, recreating the complex strata of modern South African culture and the joys and tragedies of its history.
