John Malkovich stars in this drama based on the novel by South African author J.M Coetzee. David Lurie (Malkovich) is a self-absorbed, twice-divorced literary professor at a South African university who is forced to resign after having an affair with one of his students, Melanie (Antoinette Engel). This precipitates a near-breakdown that leads to him heading out to the bush to stay with his lesbian daughter Lucy (Jessica Haines), who shares a farm in the Eastern Cape with black co-worker Petrus (Eric Ebouaney). At first his daughter's calming influence and the natural rhythm of farm life bring solace to David's broken existence - but a vicious attack by a gang of black youths forces David to think about the changes in the world outside as well as his own personal crisis.
