Lonely South African factory worker Xolani returns home to assist during an annual Xhosa circumcision initiation into manhood. At a remote mountain camp engulfed in an environment of machismo and aggression, Xolani cares for a defiant initiate from Johannesburg, and also meets an old childhood friend with whom he rekindles old feelings. As the unbearable crisis builds he must choose between the traditional world of his people and his forbidden love for another man.
