Abducted at birth, Fikile’s disappearance has cast a shadow over Puleng’s life, and she’s determined to solve the case.
While at first glance this may seem like just another rich brats teenage drama, the plot runs deeper. Almost every character has a story and a question mark.
Is the head-girl-elect as perfect as she seems? Also, will Puleng ever find out the truth about her missing sister, abducted as a newborn?
The story is a web of controversies and secrets sprinkled generously with teenage spunkiness and humor.
Blood & Water feature rising stars from the South African movie industry. They include breakout actress Khosi Ngema, Ama Qamata, Natasha Thahane, Gail Mabalane, Cindy Mahlangu, Thabang Molaba, Arno Greeff, and also, Dillon Windvogel.
