From emotions of neglect, curiosity, a search for a sense of belonging to closure, this show mirrors the real struggles that so called “illegitimate” children are faced with as they navigate their daily lives and viewers would not want to miss what we have in store for them,” says Nomsa Philiso, the Director of Local Entertainment Channels at M-Net.
