South Africa’s wilderness in the 1800s: Five years after their mother died, Rachel, a girl on the cusp of adolescence, and five-year-old Jamie find themselves on their way to the gold fields with their father, Herman, to start a new life. But winter is closing in fast, and when Jamie goes missing in a freak snowstorm, Rachel must brave the deadly cold to search for her little brother.
The beloved heroine of this Afrikaans folktale is brought to life by Zonika de Vries, who won the Young Actress award for the role at last year’s Silwerskerm Festival.
