Happiness is a Four-letter Word

Four friends' lives seem to be crashing before them: Just as Nandi's final wedding arrangements are put in place, her ex-fiance, a man who bankrupted her heart and bank account, makes a re-appearance. Zaza, the trophy wife , waits for the day that her affair comes to light and her husband gives her a one-way ticket back to the township. On the other hand, all Tumi needs to fulfill her perfect life is a child of her own. Then a stranger shows up claiming to be pregnant with her husband's child. Tumi's trust and beliefs in her marriage are put to the test. For Princess, growing up in an abusive home has taught her to never let men take her for a ride. Until this feisty feminist meets Theo, a Zimbabwean painter, who seems to touch all the right buttons. Then Princess discovers she's pregnant and Theo goes AWOL, with half her belongings. Happiness is a Four-letter Word is a riveting tale that will make you want to laugh out loud and one minute after, reach for the tissues. Think Sex and the City, Sandton...
