Synopsis


One fine day, you wait and see.


We'll pack our things in something and get the hell out of here.


It's been a year since Morrie returned to Port Elizabeth to live with his brother Zach.


They share childhood memories of their mother, yet have wildly contrasting life experiences due to their different fathers.


Morrie wants to take them away from their township shack, buy a small farm and make a new life.


To take their minds off the struggle, they decide Zach needs a pen pal.


But who should it be?


An innocent game can quickly go wrong ...


As things get complicated, the stakes rise: can they free themselves from the enduring prejudices provoked by the different shades of their skin?


We're tied together.


It's what they call the blood knot ... the bond between brothers.
