Graye Morkel quote iconVaselinetjie succeeds in telling the story of a young girl being ripped away from her family and shoved into a world of uncertainty, which then brings us to a story of a girl’s journey to self-discovery. But only brushes over the core issues of race identity in a post Apartheid South Africa.
