Fanie Fourie's Lobola
Fanie Fourie, an Afrikaans guy, designs custom cars. He lives with his mother in an insulated world that looks like the old South Africa. On a dare, he asks Dinky Magubane, a beautiful Zulu woman, to come with him to his brother's wedding. She agrees, on condition that he will pretend to be her boyfriend so she can stop her traditional father from pressuring her into marriage. One thing leads to another and soon they are discussing marriage and lobola .... In English, Afrikaans and Zulu with English subtitles.
