A steamy ride through the bleak streets of Apartheid South Africa. Simon Brown is from a working-class district of Victoria. More interested in sex than politics, he is embarrassed by his mother's liberal familiarity with the local Coloureds and appalled by his school friend's ambition to join Special Branch. From stuck-up Elizabeth Carter to Thandi, the fiery daughter of the family maid, he keeps falling for the wrong girl. After being propelled into the frontline of conflict, Simon is forced to choose between his white privileges or turn law breaker.
