HOOFMEISIE is a hilarious family comedy about three primary school girls and their obsessed mothers who share the same desire – to become headgirl of Laerskool Stumbo Pops. The story follows Nadia van Heerden (12), an adorable orphan who lives with her cynical grandmother, and shares this same goal. Nadia tastes success when she takes the award for best public speaker, but failure at netball try-outs, entrepreneurs’ day and academics is just the start of her problems. She is convinced that her best friend Melissa has betrayed her, and soon Nadia becomes a self-centered “mean girl” who will do anything for the title of Hoofmeisie. It is only after Nadia sacrifices the good qualities in her personality, that she learns what a true leader should be.
