A schoolboy playing truant bumps into his revered father coming out of the cinema with a woman.
An ordinary mishap; but the father is no ordinary man, and the family, threatened by the affair, is no ordinary family.
This is a passionate story; love between a man and two women, between father and son, and something even more demanding - a love of freedom.
It is a highly intimate drama of personal conflict and public struggle in the evolutionary events that, at great cost to people like these, have brought about change in South Africa.
