Meisie

In a small town on the edge of the Kalahari Desert, Meisie (Abrina Bosman), a young girl with an astonishing talent for mathematics, is prevented by her father from going to her local school. Instead she is forced to tend the goats, practicing her maths with stones on the desert sand. When an inspirational and kind new teacher, Esmeralda September (Renate Stuurman), arrives and discovers Meisie's talent, she is eager to bring her into the school system. Her father refuses, and the modernising Esmeralda is challenged when she comes up against local tradition.
