A sequel to the 1974 Afrikaans comedy Tant Ralie se Losieshuis, the film tells of two elderly sisters, "Ralie" and "Matilda", who use their Cape Town boarding house to attract eligible men, but the only prospect under their roof is "CJ", the self-appointed captain of a dilapidated old fishing boat.
