Script 1: Young Female:
EXT. VILLAGE – DAY.
Muzi sits under a shaded tree, playing a song on his guitar. Buhle approaches but Muzi is unaware as he strums his guitar. Buhle watches him for a moment.
I do want to be your love, if you’re still asking
and I’m not too late. If you would still like to be m ine.
She waits for Muzi. He ignores her.
I’ve loved you for years without even knowing it,
content and safe in the knowledge that you’re always there…
Buhle waits but Muzi still doesn’t look up or respond.
If you don’t mind, I’d like to keep the letter. It
will be a reminder of how I lost someone I care for very deeply. I’ve taken you for granted and for that I’m sorry Muzi.
Eyes swimming with tears, Buhle starts walking back home.

Script 2: Young Male
INT. HOSPITAL ROOM: DAY
DJ MO is sitting in a chair talking into a microphone
DJ MO (Sickly)
Baf’wethu, I’ve heard your pleas, your questions and the rumors. You’re wondering, where DJ Mo disappeared to? I appreciate the love. The truth is, I’ve been sick for a while… You see baf’wethu a few years ago I was infected with HIV. But I kept partying it up, ignoring the truth…
I tried traditional medicine – but that didn’t work so I just got more sick and eish, soon I was very bad. Then the clinic gave me ARVs. But you know me – I’m stubborn. They said I would recover on ARVs but I got impatient… I thought… if I ignore this thing it would go away? Ba’fwethu – when I threw away the ARVs I was throwing away my life…
Now I’m in hospital. The doctor tells me I have AIDS and pneumonia.
Baf’wethu… ma’gents, don’t be like me, don’t wait till it’s too late…
Sisonke baf’wethu. I know I’m in your prayers…

Script 3: Middle Aged Man
EXT. MOLETE’S GARDEN – EVENING.
Molete watches his son from a distance as Ntando takes out his frustration on some of the unkempt grass beds. Molete steps closer and sits on the step. Ntando ignores his father.
I was thinking son…it would be best if you
stayed at the university?
I want you to be your own man… Have a good life…I want you to be happy…
Molete waits for an answer. When nothing is forthcoming.
It’s not true – That no one wants you…
You think I left because of you? Ntando says nothing.
MOLETE (CONT’D) (Tearful)
No my boy – You’re so wrong… I left because I was stupid… arrogant, irresponsible…. I don’t want to destroy your life son… You’d be better off…awayfrom me.
MOLETE (CONT’D) Please! Let me do one thing right…
He begins to cough and looks like he’s going to collapse.
MOLETE (CONT’D) You shouldn’t call me… dad.
Molete begins to weep.
I ruin everything…

Script 4: Middle Aged Female
INT. ZAMO’S KITCHEN – DAY. Zamo is on the phone.
Thank you Nonkululeko. Yes, keep well.
She ends the call and we reveal her and Ntando are having dinner.
At least Duma will be getting his disability
cheque… I need to find my own work now… He still insists he doesn’t remember me. What if he never remembers me and our life together, or any of the other things he has done?
(A defiant beat)
My husband had a terrible accident. Then I
find out he was sleeping with everyone across the country and he loses his memory….
She goes to the fridge and removes a bottle of wine and pours herself a glass.
I’m divorcing him memory or no memory…
She considers the wine.
If you can’t beat the sinners why not join them.
(He stares at her) People drank in the bible you know.

Goodluck to everyone who’s going to audition. I’m just really curious to see how this second season will go. I sure hope it won’t be a repeat of what we’ve already seen… I’m looking forward to seeing just how they can outdo the awesomery that was the first season. GOOD LUCK to the producers.
