He is the typical qgood nativeq of his generation, poorly educated, submissive and subservient, brought up to know his inferior place and believe that qit was God's design for the white man to rule over meq. But this unquestioning obedience is called into rebellion when his beloved daughter, Sindiswa, a committed young struggle activist, goes missing in exile. Kondile's search leads him to Lesotho and grim discoveries of betrayal that shatter forever his own qcomplicity of silenceq committing him to an irrevocable path of no return.
