Set in South Africa during the 1970as, A Telling Time portrays a group of attorneys trying to challenge the cruel Apartheid system. The harrowing events that follow their defense of a Zulu man pit victims against oppressors, and family members against each other. After uncovering brutal secrets, the lawyers find themselves involved in bigger legal issues than they had anticipated, as charges of attempted murder and torture arise. The future seems bleak: harsh laws forcibly separate black families, white families are torn apart by angry differences, and a society turns on itself with intolerance and violence. Yet it is in this hostile setting, with the 20th century moving to a close and a new century beginning, that love, justice, and reconciliation unexpectedly bloom.
