Set in Amanzimtoti, South Africa, the series follows Wayne du Preez as he commences his matric. Completing his final year of high school won’t be his only problem however when a boy from his past returns to small town Toti, throwing Wayne’s picket-fence dreams with girlfriend Jess into a tailspin and forcing Wayne to deal with a part of himself he’s been denying ever since he shared his first kiss with Kyle way back when.
