The next day she submits her article about the interview to the school newspaper editor Wendy Dlamini (Natasha Thahane). Wendy changes the article and publishes in the newspaper due to politics. Puleng and Fikile eventually got into a fight which went too far.

On the other hand, Puleng investigates about her sister with wade daniels(Dillon Windvogel) starting from Fikile's birth certificate. They both tracked down the signing officer of the certificate in the jail, which turns out to be useless. 

And the remaining story is how Puleng managed to find about her sister and convey the truth to her. This series is more of a teen drama than a mystery. You will mostly find the protagonist dealing with issues of her wrongdoings than the solving of her sister's case.
