Ben knows from the get-go that Linda (Uys) is his boss’s daughter and his co-workers make it their business to help along the budding relationship, making for some comic moments.Linda simply thinks Ben is a guy in a band and he goes to a lot of trouble to reinforce the idea, starting a band with two work friends.
When Paul helps wealthy businessman Bernard Russell(Graham Clarke) to change his car’s burst tyre near Franschoek, Russell offers him shelter.
But the opulent wine estate is no safe haven, and Paul soon senses that his life is about to resemble one of those old black-and-white movies: he is the fallible hero, a young woman in Russell’s household (Amalia Uys) is the scheming femme fatale, and the outcome may be deadly.

Ben (Smith) is an unambitious mechanic with a hidden ambition to make music.
He strikes up a conversation with a lady in a bar one night and the two quickly proceed to Facebook flirting and then dating in the real world.
They’re immediately attracted to each other, and, in a frantic and uncertain effort to disguise his identity, Ben lies to Linda and claims to be in a band.
When their love blossoms unexpectedly and he decides that he wants to live up to his lie, he starts a band with a few fellow employees, and they enroll for a battle-of-the-bands competition. What will happen if Linda finds out that he lied to her?
The film starts with some appalling, stereotypically misogynistic behaviour from the guys at Linda’s workplace and you understand her initial stand-offish demeanour, but Uys never gives us a glimpse beneath the carefully cultivated, blandly vanilla persona of Linda.
Linda does broach the subject of her loneliness, as all her friends pair off, with her father (Kelfkens), whom everyone refers to as Kaptein – but then this idea is left dangling in the wind, as she moves on.
Ex-cop Paul Mullan (Brandon Auret) has a lot more baggage than the rucksack he’s carrying across the country.
