Sometimes taking a detour can reveal an entire world you did not know existed. That is what happens to reporter Lars Overland, who drives into a small town on his way to somewhere else and ends up chasing ghosts through a sleepless night.
This story is about the small town of Matjiesfontein in the Karoo.
It is a story where the desert wind blows, and the lines between the past, the present, reality and dream are blurred.
