In a classroom of the black Zolile High, Mr. M referees a student debate contesting that women should not receive the same education as men. In favour is Thami, one of Mr. M's favorite and most promising students. In opposition is Isabel, a white student visiting from an all-girls school. Mr. M sees potential in the intellectual pairing of Isabel and Thami and brings them together as a team for the state wide English literature competition. As they prepare under Mr. M's tutelage, Isabel gains immense respect and admiration for Mr. M and forms a deep friendship with Thami. Outside the classroom, Mr. M's hopes for Thami are challenged by their generational divide.
