Swartwater

Swartwater is an Afrikaans drama series.

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.
