An examination of racial tensions in a small, rural, conservative town in South Africa
The arrival of a tank of lobsters in a local shop in Klippisfontein, South Africa, sets the community talking. Local kids and adults watch on with fascinated delight, but an undercurrent of suspicion and dislike soon begins to surface—and it's not all about the lobsters. In a town troubled by undercurrents of racism, prejudice, and poverty, some people show their worst traits while others shine through with humor, warmth, and affection. A funny and touching story of friendship, marriage, kindness, redemption, and brightly colored shellfish.
