A Cape Town professor, David Lurie, outright refuses to defend himself for an affair with a black student.

When he gives the student a passing grade for an exam she didn't even attend, he is immediately dismissed.

David soon moves to his daughter Lucy's farm, which she runs under most disadvantage terms, favouring the black locals.

Yet rowdies violently robs and abuse them both, unprovoked. Lucy refuses to fight back, unlike David, who however is surprised by his own altruistic potential.
