Aggie and Ernestine are best friends. Playing together in their rural idyll, life couldn't be happier. That is, until their lives are shattered by violence. Aggie and her mother are forced to flee their homeland, leaving behind the rest of their family, and to Aggie's despair, Ernestine. Travelling from their central-African village, they make their way to the Promised Land - South Africa and its metropolitan hub, Cape Town.
Two actresses trace the story of Aggie and her mother as they travel across Africa to an alien environment. Using little, but multi-lingual spoken dialogue, the story is told through physical images and through the evocative musical text: a drawing of the pastoral village is burnt by hooded militia; pairs of shoes in the actors' hands trudge across sprinkled sand; and Cape Town¹s skyline is revealed in wire mesh.
