Her luck seemed to turn though when she met her husband. Unfortunately, despite their every effort, she has been unable to fall pregnant. On her deathbed, after a devastating illness, her mother Ntokozo tells her that all this bad luck the family has is from a mistake she made years ago involving two babies at a hospital in Durban where she worked.

Sindisiwe is relieved, excited and determined by the possibility of fixing the mistake and finally being able to put an end to the curse she believes is in her life. Finally she has found the cause of all this bad luck, including her inability to conceive and now she will be able to remedy it.
