From Sunrise-on-Sea to Indwe


Anneliese Burgess was an Eastern Cape farm girl, raised in the foothills of the Drakensberg mountains during the tail end of the apartheid era.

When she left the farm to study at Stellenbosch University her world imploded as she began to question and relearn everything she thought she knew about her country and its people.

Anneliese, now an award-winning investigative journalist, is working on a very personal book and, just days after the death of her beloved father, returns to her childhood home to search through family albums for an image that is key to her story.

She revisits a landscape that is achingly beautiful, undertaking a journey that is rooted in courage and honesty, to the place she has always known as home.
