Sticks and Stones tells the story of a woman taking the power into her own hands and entering a traditional male dominated domain. Palesa is unemployed, undervalued and under pressure. She lives in a shack with her grandmother. When an accidental dropping of a paraffin lamp leads to a raging fire that kills her neighbour’s children, Palesa is driven to explore alternative means of building. She pulls on her gumboots and enters the construction industry.
