Synopsis


South Africa, 2019.


Twenty-five years since the first post-apartheid democratic elections, two men from contrasting walks of life are thrust together to reflect on a quarter century of change.


Jack Morris is a celebrated classical actor who's just been given both a career-defining role and a life-changing diagnosis.


Besides his age, Jack has seemingly little in common with his at-home nurse Lunga Kunene, but the two men soon discover their shared passion for Shakespeare, which ignites this 'rich, raw and shattering head-to-head' (The Times).
