A single, unaccomplished Zulu woman must find ‘THE ONE’ in the pitiless concrete jungle that is Jo’burg, before she turns 40. Following a disastrous drunken display at her younger sister’s wedding, BUYI DUBE (38) has her parents worried that she’s wasting her life working at meaningless jobs. They insist that she takes her head out of the clouds and focus on finding herself a good man and settling down. Goofing around was fine at 20, even 30, but Buyi’s almost 40. Buyi is absolutely guttered.
Buyi returns from KwaZulu-Natal feeling deflated about her love life. Where the hell is a heavier set, black woman going to find a man in South Africa? Desperate, Buyi reluctantly allows her sexy, best friend, LINDI (36), to help find her a man from her exclusive “man market”.
Between questionable concoctions, a quirky magician with a cat obsession and a sex addict that can’t get enough of a big butt, Buyi quickly loses hope of finding he match. Meanwhile, GREG, an old schoolmate from Buyi’s past, who is in love with her, comes to town with the aim of making Buyi a star comedian as her manager. But, Buyi’s on a mission to find a man, besides … she’s not funny! Inappropriate yes, but not funny … or is she?
A hilariously, heart-warming story of acceptance and hope; LOOKING FOR LOVE follows one woman’s journey to learning that the path to finding Mr Right starts with finding herself first.
