Nicholas has long known he is different, that there is something shameful and unacceptable in him that must stay hidden, denied even. But South Africa’s minority government are embroiled in conflict at the Angolian border and all white young men over 16 must serve two years of compulsory military service to defend the Apartheid regime and its culture of toxic racist machismo. The ‘black danger’ is the real and present threat; what is wrong with Nicholas and others like him can be rooted out, treated and cured like a cancer. But just when fear pushes Nicholas to accept unspeakable horrors in the hopes of staying invisible, a tender relationship with another recruit becomes as dangerous for them both as any enemy fire.
User Reviews: I expected so much more from this film. The fact that the film did not even have a proper climax and that the characters barely had a script throughout the film leaves a person very disoriented at the end! I really had high expectations from this film and except from the fact that there was almost no story line, the background music was definitely not well thought out.
