Young Veronica Jonkers dreams. She will sing in Johannesburg and become famous like the women she watches on the TV through her neighbor’s window at night. But her Oupa fears for his granddaughter, unable to understand the longing to leave the dry land he has farmed since childhood. Here on the Karoo, Oupa’s seeds are watered with the tears of promises made and broken, and fed with the dreams of a child who has suddenly grown into a woman.
