‘n Clover Aardklop-produksie aangebied deur Elsabé Daneel Produksies. Teks: Deon Opperman; Vertaling: Hanli Rolfes. Met Elsabé Daneel. Mediavennoot: Media24. Regie: Juanita Swanepoel.

Vyf vroue. Een aktrise. ʼn Ode aan weerloosheid en taaiheid. Hoe verwerk mens die trauma van verkragting, aborsie, onvrugbaarheid, witwees in Afrika, asook die weggee en selfmoord van ʼn kind? Die verliese is bitter, maar die soet balsem lê in elke vrou se stille triomf om heel te word.
