An inspirational journey.

One of the most moving stories to emerge from Apartheid South Africa: Sandra Laing is a black child born in the 1950s to white Afrikaners, unaware of their black ancestry. Her parents are rural shopkeepers serving the local black community, who lovingly bring her up as their little ‘white’ girl. But, at the age of 10, Sandra is driven out of white society. The film follows Sandra’s thirty-year journey from rejection to acceptance and betrayal to reconciliation, as she struggles to define her place in a changing world.
