Blood and Water is a Netflix original series that was released on the 20th May 2020. According to the reports since it has been released it has ranked number 1 in South Africa, France, Bahamas, Libya, Jamaica, USA and Kenya.
Blood and Water revolves around the character Puleng (Ama Qamata), a high school girl whose sister was kidnapped as part of a human trafficking network about 17 years ago.
The first episode kicks off with 16 year old Puleng Khumalo’s family celebrating the 17th birthday of her missing sister Phumele who was kidnapped from the hospital where she was born as a baby.
Puleng’s parents are Thandeka (played by Gail Mabalane) and Julius (played by Getmore Sithole). Her brother is Siya (played by Odwa Gwanya).
The Khumalo’s have celebrated their missing daughter’s birthday every years and Puleng seems to have grown frustrated by this.
Puleng sneaks out of the birthday celebration to go to a house party with her friend Zama (played by Cindy Mahlangu). The house party is actually a birthday celebration of Fikile Bhele (played by Khosi Ngema).
At the party Puleng meets Wade (played by Dillon Windvogel) who casually points out that she looks like Fikile. This is where Puleng’s suspicions that Fikile might be her long lost sister Phume begin.
