Storyline

Mahree Bok lives on a farm in South Africa. Her father is a policeman who cannot hide his joy when activist Steve Biko is caught by the South African authorities. Piper Dellums is the daughter of a US congressman from California and who lives in a nice home in Washington DC. When Mahree is chosen to spend a semester at the Dellums' house, she doesn't expect that her host family would be black. Nor do her hosts suspect that she is not a black South African.

Quotes

Ron Dellums: I have a friend, a new friend, from South Africa. And this friend recently told me about a unique bird found in her country. And what is remarkable about this bird is not that it nests, for all birds nest, but that this particular bird nests in a community all unrelated to each other and all of different colors. This community of different colors and different birds has one common goal: to care for each other. We are a world of people, not ethnic groups, not races, and not different ...

Absolutely Great!!!
1 August 2000 | by (Titusville, FL) – See all my reviews

If you haven't seen this movie, I think you should see it. I love this movie and also cried at the end when I read the truth about the movie. You need to see it so you can find out what happened then and is still happening today which is wrong. I have a world history teacher who told me that he is not African American. He said that he is, "AMERICAN," just like me and that the only thing different from him and me is that he has darker skin then me. We both do the same things(well almost I mean he is older then me), we both have friends no matter who they are.
