Pheliswa and her family rent in a dilapidated building in gangster-ridden, inner city Joburg – but still, its home. Now the landlord wants them out, gangsters are threatening to hijack the building and Pheliswa is terrified they will be on the streets, homeless. How is she going to keep a roof over their heads?
