In the harsh and beautiful land of South Africa, races clash in an unequal struggle for justice that divides a family and inflames a whole continent. Manfred De La Rey, hard and lean as a desert lion, allows a blind, raging anger to catapult him to a dangerous success. While Shasa Courtney, his brother, strives to give meaning to his country's uncertain future, he is trapped in the inevitable rush of history.
