Ian Jantjies owns a corner shop in George called Ian & Ander. The middle-aged man moved from a busy city to a serene small town. He has three older employees who cause havoc and chaos.

Former actress Belinda Swanepoel has an obsession with mirrors. She spends the most time looking at herself and even forgets about customers at the cash register.

Annetjie Nel is a militarist spinster. He marches around barking orders at everyone. He tries to keep an eye on Ian’s wife, who has a bad habit of not paying.

Frans Wessels is a handsome farm hero Frans Wessels. He tries to be the peace mediator between Annetjie and Belinda. They all have a common challenge to face – old age. However, the lesson there is life gives second chances, and no one is ever too old to have fun.

Sonja Herholdt pops in to visit the quirky people of the hardware store. Belinda and Annetjie crossed paths in their younger days, and we will see the root causes through a flashback.
