With a poet’s eye for place, light, and the spiritual dimensions of everyday exis- tence, Lemohang Jeremiah Mosese crafts a meditation on the concept of homeland and a transcendent elegy for what is lost in the name of progress. Grieving and alone, following the deaths of her husband and children, elderly Mantoa (Mary Twala Mhlongo) prepares for her own death.
