The film also features actress, Hlubi Mboya who plays the role of a drug addict and the mother of the young boy.

Khabonina announced the exciting news on her Twitter page earlier on today.

Speaking on the Expresso Show, Khabonina mentioned that the script was the main reason why she decided to act in the movie.

"When I read the script, I thought to myself, 'Oh my goodness! I was drawn to Dora and was drawn to the relationship she has with Peace (the little boy)..."

Congratulations Khabonina.
