This is a split-screen film focused on material culture, specifically that of three long-term Zimbabwean female migrants currently residing in Cape Town, South Africa. Through an exploration of the objects they brought with them, the objects sent back to their homeland, the objects left behind and their associated memories, stories of joy, loss, and hopes for a return to Zimbabwe are examined.
