Atang lives in the slums of Johannesburg. When his father dies, Atang must fulfill his last wishes and bury him in Lesotho, the rural mountainside country they left years ago to find a better life. Atang feels like a stranger in his homeland, until he reconnects with a childhood friend, the beautiful Dineo, who cares for her HIV-infected sister. But their budding romance is thwarted when Dineo’s father relocates his family to a remote village to hide his shame over his daughter’s illness. Atang cannot forget Dineo. He befriends a young orphan, and together they make the arduous journey across the rugged mountains of Lesotho to find her. The two undergo experiences that force Atang to make peace with the life he led before. When he finally reaches Dineo, he is a changed man, but he must overcome one last obstacle to win her heart.
