My One True FriendT01461368756
1970 Rhodesia. Two families, two different lives.

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.
