Three brothers who drifted apart after their mother's tragic death return to the farm where they grew up to celebrate their father's 60th birthday.

"Scheepers het nou maar eenmaal die vermoë om jou nostalgie-en-pynaar raak te boor met sy beeldryke tekste, onmiddelik herkenbare karakters wat 'n Afrikaans praat wat so natuurlik voel soos asemhaal, en situasies en gebeure waarmee die meeste van ons kan vereenselwig." Marina Griebenow, INK
