In this deeply affecting portrait of
ordinary courage in present-day South Africa, a single mother—Shirley Adams—struggles to care for her paraplegic teenage son, Donovan, in a depressed
district on the outskirts of Cape Town. Wearied but resolute, she desperately
clings to him as he withdraws from the world following a suicide attempt, and
is hopeful when his spirits are momentarily lifted by the appearance of Tamsin,
a pretty but overeager social worker. But when the relationship between Donovan
and Tamsin sours, his fragile emotional health declines, and Shirley’s faith
and perseverance are put to the ultimate test.
