Sofia is Beatriz (36) and Geoff's (38) first daughter and third child. Beatriz and Geoff are married. The other children are Raphael, 4, and Luca, 2. They live in a house in a gated community in an upper-class suburban area of Johannesburg. Beatriz is a lawyer who took maternity leave shortly before giving birth and chose to go back to work when Sofia was two months old. Geoff is in finance. He took a few days of paternity leave after Sofia's birth.

Sofia spends her days with Nomsa, her nanny, who cares for all three of the children when the boys get home from pre-school before lunch. Nomsa arrives at work in the early morning and travels back home by taxi once Beatrize or Geoff return from work and drop her at the taxi rank. Shirley is also a domestic worker, living on the premises, and occasionally looks after the children, although her primary responsibilities are housekeeping, laundry and some cooking.

Once Beatriz had returned to work filming generally took place more flexibly, as requested by Sofia’s parents, between 5 and 6 pm so that the changeover interactions from nanny/housekeeper to parent could be captured, rather than filming predominantly in the absence of a parent.
