Rozinsky, a Polish expatriate, is a schoolmaster who challenges racist apartheid-era views in the South African countryside. He is opposed by the English landowner Stratford, who holds his tenants, the African "bywoners", at his mercy. Engela, the protagonist, is one of these bywoners, and she becomes involved with Stratford's son, leading to a life-changing moment.
