“It’s the best cancer to get,” Dr Pillay tells the bewildered Kittie Claassen (Carla Smith from Binnelanders), a 22-year-old honours student, as he hands her a diagnosis of Hodgkin’s Disease, and the prospect of spending the next six months fighting for her life.
But Kittie has plans, she has things to do, not the least of which is cracking her journalistic aspirations and enjoying her first burst of young adult freedom with her best friends Mandy (Eve Nthabiseng Rasimeni from Z’bondiwe and Suidooster) and Fanie (Suidoosterfees and Silwerskermfees winning actor/writer Hendrik Nieuwoudt from Fynskrif).
Tydelik Terminaal (Temporarily Terminal) is a heartwarming and hope-filled kykNet miniseries based on creator Elanie Rupping’s own battle with cancer. It’s produced by six-time SAFTA-nominees Nouvanaand Films, who’ve given us comedy gold like Hotel, Buurtwag and Die Ware Naarheid.
The all-star cast also includes SAFTA winners Anna-Mart van der Merwe (Poppie Nongena) and Tiffany Barbuzano (Still Breathing); SAFTA nominees Zane Meas (Isidingo) and Anel Alexander (Sink); and Frank Opperman (Dominee Tienie).
