The truth is that many well-educated, sophisticated white people lived through years of minority rule in South Africa barely thinking about what was happening to the rest of the population. In this film set in the 1970s, teacher Ben Du Toit is only roused into action after his gardener's son goes missing during a demonstration. Ben gets slowly caught up in the family's search for justice, and begins to learn how little the rule of law means under the apartheid regime. This is a powerful, well-acted film, made just before the system crumbled.
