In 1977, 19-year-old TK is arrested, and held in solitary confinement for involvement in the Soweto riots. She sits in a cell with a small metal frame cot, a metal bucket and a light bulb named Alfred. Thandeka is TK’s other self. Full of life, passion and laughter. She keeps alive the memories TK needs to nourish her soul while they negotiate the reality of being in solitary confinement.
