A white couple invites their best friends, a “colored” family to dinner. What could be more . . . complicated?
Set in South Africa in 1963 and hauntingly resonant today, A Lesson from Aloes weaves a tale of poetry and survival, of friendship and betrayal, where the personal is always political and the political is always very, very personal. Aloes is the intensely personal story of three people struggling to keep love and friendship alive when trust is broken.
