A journalist and a poetess meet during the hearings of South African Truth and Reconciliation Commission.
The exterior scenes and shots of the TRC offices (for instance where Anna and Dumi first meet) were shot on the forecourt of the South African Museum in the Company Gardens in Cape Town's city center. At least some of the internal scenes at the same place were shot in the Centre for the Book, which is down the road from the Museum and has curving corridors.
Never, never, and never again shall it be that this beautiful land will again experience the oppression of one by another.
All number plates on vehicles throughout the film (apart from archival footage) are fake and do not follow the format of older South African number plates.
