Broken Vows will see two young women, Azania (played by Enhle Maphumulo) and Thandi (played by Jo-Anne Reyneke) juggle between running a successful wedding planning company and keeping their deep and dark secrets of their lives under the carpet. The two are entrusted by Moswane family matriarch Mam Gertrude (played by Thembi Mtshali-Jones) to be the best wedding planners in Johannesburg. Not all is rosy between the two, though – Azania is often burdened with the task of seeking her mother’s approval and outshining Thandi in running the business.
