Storyline

Krotoa, a feisty, bright, young 11 year old girl is removed from her close-knit Khoi tribe to serve Jan van Riebeeck, her uncle's trading partner. She is brought into the first Fort established by the Dutch East India Company in 1652. There she grows into a visionary young woman who assimilates the Dutch language and culture so well that she rises to become an influential interpreter for van Riebeeck who became the first Governor of the Cape Colony. As such Krotoa ends up being rejected by her own Khoi people and destroyed by the Dutch when she tries to find the middle way between the two cultures. Written by Roberta Durrant

Interesting movie, acting very good and worth seeing
10 August 2017 | by charlescr-97650See all my reviews

The story line based on historically facts were very good. The acting was very good by all involved. Various facts you were not aware off let you think about whether what was done was right or wrong. It has inspire me to think differently on the history of our country and what we have done to people.
