Pretty's Daughter


When she is unable to move overseas with the wealthy woman who raised her, Busi is forced to move back to the township to live with her mother, a domestic worker. Although she has a difficult time accepting her changed circumstances, she is able to navigate a new world of living in the township, a new school, friendship and love interest until those worlds collide.
