Wow, I love this, it's so cool.

And these are the things we saw

in the Cape.

This is not what we discussed,

I asked for a dark protea and

a light protea on each table,

not two light ones.

(House alarm)

Could you quickly taste?

It's the dessert snacks.

No, no, no!

We took in that dress with two

centimetres yesterday.

We've been working on this

for a long time, Nina.

It's just for one more night, okay?

You're right.

Oh sorry, that's my phone. Hold this.

Wow, this is yummy!

Ronel, good afternoon?

My goodness...

I'm on my way.

(Alarm sounds)

Go, go, go, go, go...

We have him! We have him!

Damn it, I'm telling you

it's my mom's house!

Yeah, yeah.

You can explain that in court.


Goodness, that's my child!

What are you doing?

Free him, you can't do that

to the poor child. Free him!

Help the man up. Free him!

Who's in control here?

Very sorry, Auntie. Sorry man.

Righto! Call it in, men. Call it in!

Hello, Mom.


Why didn't you let me know?

I would have prepared your room for you.

I wanted to surprise you.

I've just stored this here

for the time being...

the bakery has started taking over.

I'll tell you what, let me take this box

in the meantime...


I will, it's not necessary.

Well, I have to go and bake.

I'm so happy you're home.

Bake... I have to bake now!

It's such a pity...

We're going to miss our story times.

Thank you very much.

Thank you.

Sometimes in life,

we have to make sacrifices.

And your own fairy tale is coming

true, my love.

Come, we have a big day

we need to focus on.

You're right, Mom. Being Mrs Retief

is going to take up all my time.

When's the last time

you spoke to Nina?

Years ago... Why?

(Knock on the door)

Please put the koeksisters

in the fridge.

Oh, morning, Willem.

Hello, Ronel.

- Please come in.

- Thank you.

Your pastries always smell so lovely.

Thank you.

Sorry, Hugo, I'm sure

you remember Minister Willem.

Yes, of course. Minister.

Welcome back, young man.

Your mom never stops

talking about you.

I've seen each and every publication

that has your photographs in it.

I thought I'd come and work

on the cage...

What's wrong with the cage?

No, nothing. I just thought...

I've wanted to use that space for

quite some time.

You're probably here for the wedding?

No... Who's getting married?

The Lombaard girl.

The entire upper town

has been invited.

And... and... the guy?

Retief. Anton's son.

Well... I don't want to keep you any

longer, you have a lot to catch up on.

I... I really assumed you knew.

No, I'm happy for her.

This is what she's always wanted.

I'm going to have a quick shower

and then I'll come and help you.


I'm coming, Mom.

Oh, here you go.

I'm late for the function and there are

more baked goods than I thought.

And don't argue, come with me.


It's not a good idea, Mom.

It was years ago, Hugo.

Everyone will be happy to see you again.

Now please help your mother.

And all along it was actually

Auntie Ronel's son!

That's impossible, Gert.

Man, I swear. Check here,

I took a photo.

Look at this...

My goodness.

Speak of the devil, here he is.

Paarl's old troublemaker is back...

Stand a bit closer, please.

If you could please give me

the opportunity to say something.

As a father... you're always worried

about the man

your daughter will

bring home one day.

They say... a daughter wants a man

just like her father.

For many years,

I thought that wasn't true...

And then Retief showed up.

Thank goodness!

Yes, my wife sometimes tried harder

than my daughter.
