The neighbourhood presents a tale of two contrasts - a household where beauty and affluence exist but which belongs to an ailing and fragile granny, and another full of chaos and uproar. Although surrounded by cheerful belongings and visited by caring offspring, Angela believes that the wind of age is a curse which should be rejected. In her twilight, she finds it difficult to believe she is no longer a strong, daring and intelligent achiever. However, there is cause for concern, the wild and wayward Jaja, the owner of the other household, who in turn feels that poverty is a curse, would do everything to be rid off it at all cost. Will Angela's aging body survive the demands of her environment?
