Based on real events, this drama from filmmaker John Greyson is set in South Africa in 1735 and tells the story of two young men who find themselves caught up in a steamy — and socially unaccepted — relationship. Livestock herder Claas Blank (Rouxnet Brown) and Dutch sailor Rijkhaart Jacobsz (Neil Sandilands) carry on an extensive, passionate affair for some time, but are ultimately caught and put to death on sodomy charges.
