Essentially a love story, Boesman & Lenaexamines the progress of a couple's life together under Apartheid, as they are pushed from the bucolic Eden of South African farmlands into the slums of Cape Town. Through radiant flashbacks, beautifully filmed by director John Berry (He Ran All the Way, Claudine), we see the life that once was for these two, which included courtship, marriage and the birth of a child. Glover and Bassett vividly bring to life Boesman & Lena's downward spiral, which eventually forces them to a makeshift shelter on the mudflats near Cape Town. When the couple encounters an old Xhosa tribesman, he is abused by Boesman in the same way that Boesman himself had been abused by his white masters.
