Based on a play by screenwriter Paul Slabolepszy which in turn is based on true story, and set in a fast-food restaurant in a South African suburb, this gripping and thought-provoking drama offers insight into the origins of apartheid as it follows a struggle between an antagonistic, frustrated white man and a black restaurant employee upon whom the white man vents his long-pent up rage.
