Summary:
Journeying from the breathtaking green splendor of the Zulu countryside to the dizzying vibrancy of 1940's Johannesburg, this is the powerful, poetic tale of two fathers, one black and one white, bound by a common fate: the loss of their sons. Although neighbors for many years, the benevolent pastor Stephen Kumalo and the wealthy landowner James Jarvis meet for the first time by chance, only to discover a chilling reality: one man's son has murdered the other. In a land shattered by hatred, these two extraordinary men form an unlikely union that transcends the barriers of class and color.
