In 2008, the University of the Free State was thrust into the international spotlight when the racist Reitz video became public. Have South Africans changed in any significant way since 1994, or are black and white still constrained by racial stereotypes? This is the question American-born Donna Bryson asks herself as she goes to investigate. Over the next five years, Bryson returns again and again to Bloemfontein and realises that the university is a microcosm of the rest of the country. On the UFS campus, black and white have had to learn to live together, but this has not always been easy. Bryson uncovers numerous personal stories of transformation, of students and staff from different backgrounds beginning to see their common humanity under the leadership of their charismatic rector, Jonathan Jansen. A story of hope in a country desperate for good news.
