South Africa, 1994. Against a backdrop of apartheid and racial violence, Yolanda Petersen returns to the land of her youth at the behest of her mother. While there Yolanda longs to reconnect with her estranged daughter, Ingrid, the product of an illegal mixed-race affair with a white man. But Ingrid is missing, and as Yolanda quickly discovers, she isn't the only woman in Cape Town desperate to protect her own. Ingrid's very existence is proof of a white man's crime, and that man's mother will do anything - even kill - to ensure the truth remains buried.
