Morning, Bliksem.

Bliksem, help.

Come, the sun's drawing water.

Johan!

Oh, no!

Johan!

I'm coming in.

Kobus.

Katie.

Hello, Kobus.

You know each other.

That's good.

It's very hot today, huh?

My father says it'll never rain.

What happened to Willemien?

Good morning, Kobus.

I work my ass off on this farm

and you...

Kobus! Kobus, man!

Sorry, horsey.

Kobus!

Kobus, man! Wait!

Read it.

It's a bit tough to read with the hangover.

We're going to lose the farm, Johan.

It's from the bank.

You've some inheritance money left...

to hold them off our backs, right?

I bought that bike, remember.

It's my ma, it's my ma!

Sarah, there's more groceries

in the car.

Hello, Ma's big boy.

When did Ma...

Check out my hair!

When did Ma buy that?

Sarah...

Some tea, please.

So you did notice.

I've wanted a chandelier for the lounge...

ever since I married your stingy father.

And speaking of him...

You'll have to play his part

in this year's Vredevlei concert.

We've been bankrupt since dad left us, Ma.

And what will the people say...

of the Willemse family of Brandfort,

if we can't even afford a concert?

Have a koeksister.

Stop over-reacting.

Check this out, Sarah.

I got the prettiest lamp for

the guestroom.

(SPEAKING IN BANTU)

(SPEAKING IN BANTU)

We just need a buyer for the farm, Japie.

Can't we lower the price,

just a little bit?

No, Kobus, we can't do that.

People may think there's a

land claim on this place.

Or worse, a big ghost.

Excuse me, that was inappropriate.

You're still having the concert, right?

I don't know anymore, Japie.

Kobus,

if we don't have the concert...

Brandfort will be just another small town.

A pit stop.

Get us a buyer for the farm, please, Japie.

You can't just walk in front

of me like that, woman!

She seems posh, if you ask me.

Did I miss something?

They say British girls are easy, but damn!

What?

When did you last... mmmm?

There you go.

Looks like you're a rent-boy now!

Impressive!

She's English.

She can carry her own bags.

Pssst... Come look.

Kosie has a girl with him.

She's probably from the city.

What?

Hello, hello, hello...

Please, come inside.

Didn't know you were bringing your

girlfriend home, Kosie!

She's not my girlfriend, Ma.

She's just lost.

Oh, you're very welcome.

You can stay as long as you like.

Kosie, bring in the luggage.

Come, Sarah.

Why does that name sound so familiar?

Sarah, prepare a feast!

And roll out a Persian rug!

Put on a blazer and comb your hair.

The Brit dated Prince William!

Agh, nonsense, man!

Yes, his name is William.

And his mom's name is Diana.

Just do as I say.

For heaven's sake...

See, what did I tell you?

Lord, thank you for this food,

bless those who prepared it.

Let us never forget You, Amen.

I don't like her.

She's not that bad.

Sarah, where is the cellphone?

The concert will remind people

why this farm is so special.

And then it will be easier to sell.

Agh, shame.

Petrus, come!

Jackal!

(SPEAKING IN BANTU)

Agh, no man, Japie!

My husband hasn't even gone

cold in his grave yet.

Oh yes, he is. He's been cold

for almost a year.

That was inappropriate.

I'm always being inappropriate.

Where are you taking those flowers?

Bring them here.

So I can water them.

Oh, ok.

Well, go away then.

Tell me Kobus, when you sell this place,

where will you go?

Probably to the city.

There isn't any work in town

for a farmer without a farm.

That's what I thought.

One of my clients seems to be interested.

So, I'll let you know.

"When we stand naked

in front of each other..."
