Geraldina die Tweede (Geraldina the Second) is a South African comedy-drama television series created by Esta Steyn about a woman who hatches a plan to get her hands on her recently deceased step-sister's fortune. In Tranquil Waters House, an old-age home in the Strand, Katy Tredoux (Margot Luyt) receives news that her step-sister, Geraldina – or Dina – de Jongh, has died suddenly. Sharing this news with her friends Greta (Antoinette Kellerman), Dak (Marko van der Colff) and Cyril (Eric Nobbs), she tells them that Geraldina used to be married to a very rich man, Claudius van Straaten (Nic de Jager), who now lives on a wine estate outside Stellenbosch. When Katy finds out that she didn't inherit anything but suitcases of Geraldina's old clothing, she is furious, having fondly imagined herself on holiday in the Bahamas. Intent on revenge, she hatches a plot to make a bit of money out of Geraldina and Claudius. Katy's plan is that Greta pass herself off as Dina in order to win the love of Claudius again.
