Featuring South Africa’s talented actors such as Antoinette Louw as Karen, Louw Venter as Francois, Wayne van Rooyen as Van Zyl, Nazli George as Dotty, Sekoati Tsubane as Gomo and Vuyelwa Mpela as Portia, season 3 of Swartwater explores the world-wide dilemma of global warming. The town is gripped by drought and the inhabitants have limited access to drinking water.
This fan favourite drama series is set in Swartwater, a fictitious town set in the Overberg. A space where interactions between different classes, races and cultures take place quite naturally. The small town becomes a microcosm of South Africa, a metaphor for our country at large; its mix of people of different backgrounds and cultures; its problems of corruption, hardship and forging new identities in an uncertain world.
The drama series follows the lives of Karen and Francois who move to Swartwater after a guilt stricken Francois accidentally shoots and kills his son.
After his mother passes away, ambitious (but failed) entrepreneur Tshiamo Tselane is left to run her supermarket in Kliptown. Having had terrible luck with all of his past projects, Tshiamo becomes hellbent on making the supermarket successful enough to one day franchise both to honour his mother’s legacy and prove his worth as a business man.
Thrown into the mix, is his father, a famous ex-soccer star, Bra Pantsula who comes back after a twenty-five year absence. Bra Pantsula had only returned to his long forgotten home due to financial desperation but when he learns of his wife’s passing, he feels a calling to be a part of his son (and grandson’s) life again. Tshiamo makes it clear to him that he wants nothing to do with him. But when it’s revealed that his father is still a fifty percent shareholder in the supermarket, Tshiamo has no choice but to grudgingly let his father back into the family and let him be a part of the running of the supermarket.
