Seven-year-old Lesedi spends her days waiting and hoping for something to happen. She begins her morning as she has many other mornings: chasing and throwing stones at the cars that pass through the centre of her isolated town. While Marta – a middle-aged shopkeeper and her best friend – well accustomed to waiting, flows through her daily routine with hard-fought contentment, Lesedi is restless, expectant, and yearns for movement.
