Synopsis


1970 Rhodesia.


Two families, two different lives.


Preparations are in hand for the irascible Lady L's birthday party, but her children are there not for family loyalty or celebration, but to claim what they feel is rightly theirs.


On another part of the estate, Kapenie and his grandson argue about loyalty.


Kapenie is loyal to a family but not his own, and the generational divide is splitting even wider.


Set against a backdrop of prejudice and inequality, My One True Friend has a profound and life-altering friendship at its heart.
