Thandeka Mkhize is destined for greatness. Or at least that’s what she believes. She feels on top of the world when she is accepted to study law at the University of Witwatersrand.
Johannesburg is the City of Gold where for a young zulu girl like her, dreams do come true.
All that glitters is not always gold. She arrives in Johannesburg and her cousin introduces her to the party lifestyle. She is naive. It comes at a price.
Her peaceful life is replaced by police, parties, money, champagne and an occasional death or two.
But who is counting for as long as the money is rolling in. All is fair in love and war.
This is a story of a young girl’s journey that might be her last ultimately. The signs that it might end in tears are there. But You Only Live Once.
Bravado grows the more fun one has.
The need to survive and be relevant drives Thandeka’s story and the people around her.
