THE RIVER


Synopsis

揟he River is a South African telenovela about two communities on both sides of a river: on one side, society's upper crust in exquisite mansions who will go to any lengths to maintain their wealth; on the other side, the exploited "common folk" who constantly toil with little to show for it.

揟he River is a South African telenovela about two communities on both sides of a river: on one side, society's upper crust in exquisite mansions who will go to any lengths to maintain their wealth; on the other side, the exploited "common folk" who constantly toil with little to show for it. The Apies river that flows through Pretoria is therefore much more than a river. It is a border that separates two worlds and will become the object of greed and lust. Lindiwe Dlamins is the Manager of a diamond mine. A polished and astute mining magnate whose stilettos have squashed anyone who dared stand in the way of her wealth, she is as beautiful as she is cold, but she nevertheless is under high pressure when she introduces a wages austerity package. Her main detractor is Thato Mokoenas, one of the most respected miners in the region who questions her chaotic management of the mine. However, when he discovers a diamond the size of a fist in the river bed, the whole game is in turmoil with both Dlamins and Mokoenas families, the two powerful families who live on each side of the river, challenging each other. The series stars Sindi Dlathu, Hlomla Dandala, Don Mlangeni Nawa, Lawrence Maleka, Moshidi Motshegwa and newcomer Larona Moagi. Dlathu plays Lindiwe, Moagi is Itumeleng, the young character from the "poor" side of town who wants to put an end to Lindiwe's ruthless gluttony, which often happens at the expense of his community. Courage and cunning eventually collide when they cannot put their differences aside, resulting in an endless body count. It is a story of ill-placed love, greed, betrayal and blood bonds, combining the allure and ruthlessness of the business world, with the raw essence of township struggles. Like a diamond in the river bed, the truth won't remain be buried forever...
