In the Free State, isolated stronghold to the Afrikaans white ethnic minority culture, the conservative farming territory’s men are obsessed with toughness and masculinity. Janno is different—secretive and emotionally frail. One day, his mother, a fiercely religious woman, brings a hardened street orphan home and asks Janno to make this stranger his brother. The two boys begin a feud over parental affection, power, and heritage.
