Princess Mahakwe (Kgalalelo Mfokazane) prepares herself for a prestigious event, her primary school’s awards ceremony, where she will be receiving top honors.
Princess’ worst nightmare is walking across the stage, in front of the whole school, in her weathered and broken school shoes. She is confident, however, that her grandmother, Thandi (Sindi Montsho), will meet her at the school gates with a brand new pair of school shoes just in time for the prestigious ceremony. However, Thandi, a factory worker, is on the other side of town managing a crisis. She has not received her wages in weeks and has not yet bought the school shoes.
Will Thandi make it to school in time? Or will Princess have to face her worst nightmare?
