Ginn Fourie and Letlapa Mphalele form an unlikely pair: a black atheist man and a white Christian woman. One has suffered directly from actions of the other. Both have been victims and both have risen beyond their pain. What brings them together is a profound story of tragedy, forgiveness and hope.
In 1993, during post Apartheid decades, Letlapa, then director of operations for the military wing of the Pan-Africanist Congress, ordered reprisal massacres in response to the killing of black school children. Ginn lost her only daughter in one of these. She later forgave Letlapa. In the film, he says this was like another window of life for him.
