Johnnie's back in Cape Town to record his new radio play - his first in his home town after many years abroad in London. In the cast, to Johnnie's surprise, is Vicki. Vicki and Johnnie had an all-consuming affair, decades ago. He was 22, she was 30. Then, prejudices about politics, age and gender shattered a deep and passionate love. Johnnie left for England, shunning Apartheid and, candidly, furthering his career. Now - crying, laughing, raging, teasing - they revisit their earlier lives and their unrecognisable city in a country, South Africa, with its own unfinished story. Johnnie's decision to leave came at a time when the troubles had deeply affected his own family - his father was murdered. Was it a selfish decision to further his career or born out of desperation at the state of his country?
