The Little Teaspoon of Sugar

It’s a new school year and Lesedi has just started Grade 8. Our young netball star is hopeful about her high school years - netball try-outs, hanging out with friends and regaling tales of scary high school teachers to her father. But all those plans come to a sudden halt when Lesedi finds out she has Type one Diabetes. With her whole life set before her, high school doesn’t feel like it’ll ever be the same.

The Little Teaspoon of Sugar is the anticipated sequel to the Cabblow Studios debut short film "3 Teaspoons of Sugar" -selected at 14 international film festivavl including Annecy 2020 & CARDIFF 2021.
