Alles Malan, meaning “everything Malan”, produced by Red Letter Day Pictures, kicks off as a coming-home tale about the return of Derik and Brenda’s son Frik, his wife Tessa, their teenage daughter and adopted son.
Having lived in the United Kingdom for some time, Frik and his family have quite an adjustment when moving back to South Africa. Frik has to take over the family’s transport business from his dad (which is also where his younger brother, Nico, works). Lawyer and mother Tessa is wondering what she will do next. Their daughter Elani is hiding a secret and their son, Freek, is struggling to find his place in the world.
Younger brother Nico has been working at Malan Vervoer for years yet still has unrealistic dreams of becoming a rugby player. He’s also been dating local high school drama teacher Lee-Anne for years, but still doesn’t seem to be ready to commit. Lee-Anne is loving, caring and compassionate but struggles to find her own voice and tends to put everybody else’s needs before her own.
Every family has secrets, inevitable problems, conflict and struggles, but part of what makes life worthwhile is the way family members stick together and help one another to get through difficult times.
