About this show

In 1984, in a segregated township in South Africa, an idealistic teacher believes education— and poetry — can create a better future for his students. Amid anti-apartheid rioting, Mr. M hopes to offer reconciliation by forming a debate club between his black school and the local white school. But as neighborhood tensions escalate, students and teacher find themselves along the blurry line between revolution and terrorism. The shocking conclusion is a timely reminder that one person's tragedy and a community's deep sense of loss are inextricably linked.
