Unfortunately, there is a land claim against the estate from the Thembalethu dwellers, the neighbouring township community, which makes the residents feel less and less secure. As a result, issues of identity and heritage became usual every day.

According to the Channel Head of SABC 3 Bouquet, Pat van Heerden, the show symbolises modernity and status and addresses contemporary South Africa issues. In his words:

The show tells moving tales of family, loyalty, love, sacrifice, betrayal and human foibles while addressing some of the issues in our country as we scramble our way to the future.
