Notes:
In 1927, South Africa passes the Immorality Act, prohibiting sexual intercourse between 'Europeans' (white people) and 'natives' (Black people). Those who break the draconian new law face imprisonment - for men of up to five years; for women, four years. Abram and his wife Alisa have their share of marital problems, but they also have a comfortable life in South Africa with their two young girls. But then the Act is passed. Alisa is black, and their two children are now evidence of their involvement in a union that has been criminalised by the state. At first, Alisa and Abram question how they'll be affected by the Act, but then officials start asking questions at the girls' school, and their estate is catalogued for potential disbursement. Abram is at a loss as to how to protect his young family.
