Sidney Bloch, an internationally recognised professor of psychiatry  from Melbourne Australia, returns to Cape Town for his medical school reunion. Sid has suffered from a troubled conscience for forty years and wants to resolve his guilt – but what will it take to free him from his past? Though it’s easy to become a bystander, it’s not so easy to live with the consequences.

Sid is accompanied on his quest for reconciliation by his son, Aaron, who is also his harshest critic. Narrated by Aaron, the film explores how a ‘good’ person accepts racism and injustice.
