A simple, apolitical man, he believes in the essential fairness of the South African government and its policies—until the sudden arrest and subsequent suicide of a black janitor from Du Toits school. Haunted by new questions and desperate to believe that the mans death was a tragic accident, Du Toit undertakes an investigation into the terrible affair—a quest for the truth that will have devastating consequences for the teacher and his family, as it draws him into a lethal morass of lies, corruption, and murder.
