A Namibian family from the busy city of Windhoek, travel up north to the village to visit their Granny. The children are especially snobby and seem more interested in their ipods cellphones than their new rural surroundings. On what seems like a boring holiday, the spoilt kids upset their Granny when they break village customs and norms. Just when it seems their new environment is impossible, they find fun and adventure in the culture they fought so hard to resist.
