What Did You Dream?

It’s the summer holidays in 1990 South Africa and 11-year-old Boipelo is back at her grandmother’s house. As the holidays come to an end, she becomes consumed by the fact that, unlike her two cousins, she can no longer remember her dreams and therefore can’t help her granny play Fahfee.
