In mountainous Lesotho, 80-year-old widow Mantoa is waiting for her son to return home from his dangerous work in a South African coal mine at Christmas time. But then she receives the news that he has died in a mining accident. For Mantoa, the world around her becomes increasingly alien. She begins to plan her own funeral in the village cemetery. When she learns that the village is to be delogged to make way for a reservoir, she begins to fight for the place of connection to her ancestors.
