This week, hidden truths of emotional abandonment come out as a family’s history is brought to light in BET’s The Big Secret, on BET (DStv channel 129) at 21:30 CAT on Wednesday, 22 November.
Palesa Mlangeni is a 21 year old girl battling with feeling emotionally abandoned by her parents. When she was 13, her father was given a job transfer to Limpopo. After six months, Palesa’s mother requested a job transfer to join her husband. She left her daughter in the care of her grandmother and aunts. Palesa, who is an only child, grew up spoiled and pampered by her parents, but the move to Limpop changed all that. Palesa reveals to her aunt that she could be bipolar, which causes her anger outbursts and self-mutilation. But her aunt does not buy into Palesa’s self-diagnosis.
The Big Secret raises relevant pro social topics in each episode and this is a strong illustration of BET commitment to create engaging content that reflects and resonates with local audience.
