South Africa's latest attempt at home-grown comedy. A nice Jewish girl gets stuck in a dorp, and ends up producing the local nativity play for Christmas. This of course causes all sorts of problems for her, and the local community, but they all end up learning from the experience.

Carol Cooper: If I saw this movie in UK or the US I would be so homesick for South Africa! Some great one liners.
Robert Haynes: Finally a local movie that actually looks and feels like a ''real'' film. Well shot , well acted and (gasp) well scripted. Is there still hope for the SA film industry _ I think so - specially when people get a load of (shameless plug) my movie early next year.
Tony Vain: A film which had the audience laughing - and there are not too many of those these days.
