A society caught in the grips of a police state leaves no one unscathed. As liberal Afrikaner Piet waits for his black comrade Steve, he contemplates survival tactics in the country that jailed his friend for political action. Piet’s wife Gladys struggles to play hostess after a nervous breakdown and troubled recovery incurred by a police raid on their home. As the warm blanket of day disappears, thorny suspicions are revealed in the darkness of the night.
