A very similar true story
Officially, the series is not based on actual facts and yet, the plot of Blood & Water recalls a similar story which took place in South Africa and had caused much talk in the media of the country at the time, that of Miché Solomon . In 2015, Cassidy Nurse changed high school and met Miché Solomon. The two teens quickly felt a strong connection. "I felt like I knew her. It was scary, I didn't understand why I was feeling this" remembered Miché in an interview given in 2019 to BBC.
A little later, the two young women take a selfie together. A photo that will further sow doubt among their friends and family. Cassidy's parents, Celeste and Morne Nurse, then decide to ask Miché if she was born on April 30, 1997, the date of birth of their daughter Zephany, kidnapped in a hospital in Cape Town. This is indeed the case ...
A DNA test will confirm the doubts: Miché is in fact the biological daughter of Celeste and Morne Nurse. Lavona Solomon, Miché's mother, is subsequently arrested: she made her husband Michael believe that she was pregnant after having had a miscarriage before kidnapping Zephany / Miché. In 2016, she was sentenced to 10 years in prison for kidnapping. Miché then met his biological family who, as in the series, celebrated his birthday every year despite his disappearance. As she told BBC, Miché is still in touch with his adoptive mother and regularly visits her in prison. Miché told his story in an autobiography published last year.
