Vir die Voëls (For the Birds)

Irma Humpel (Simoné Nortmann), a stubborn tomboy, finds herself in a wedding dress in front of the altar, but isn’t exactly sure how she ended up next to Sampie de Klerk (Francois Jacobs). It feels like yesterday when he threw her with a clod in the face. Irma had convinced herself for many years that the only way to be truly free was to remain independent, independent of the past, independent of men and definitely of love, but the extraordinary charming rugby player with a heart of gold and soft hands challenges all her beliefs and makes her go weak at the knees. She agreed to the ring, the dress and the flowers, but can she agree to give her heart to someone else? Perhaps… with a condition or two.
