This socially conscious film, set in South Africa, presents an interracial love story between a German geologist and a young mulatto woman. The German is only visiting South Africa. He meets his new love in a grocery store where he hires her as his part-time housekeeper. She soon becomes his lover and this infuriates their nosy neighbors who report them to the police. The cops come to his home and then proceed to forcefully examine the woman for signs of sexual activity.
