Your best friend has been beaten half to death. The stained blood and swollen bruises make him unrecognisable. Racial segregation. You know the same rules don’t apply to you. Would you turn a blind eye, or help?

Well, this is what happens to Matthew. He and Luke were born on the same day, spending a brief childhood on an African beach, blissfully ignorant of the outside world.

But their youth is severed. Released into the real world, the two now face their future in a country deep in the throes of violent change.

Can the rules and discipline of segregation pull apart the boys? Is there any mercy? And what happens when these two eventually cross paths?

Get ready as this story isn’t for the faint-hearted…
