    • Synopsis
    • Ingrid Jonker finds from an early age her freedom and solace in writing, whenever and wherever she can.
      She is like a whirlwind. You have to love her, bringing excitement and drama with her. Jack Cope and Andre Brink love her at the
      same time - but neither can give Ingrid what she seeks.
      Rejected by her father, who worked as minister of censorship in the Apartheid regime of 1960s South Africa, she struggles to find
      a home and a love.
      It is not until Nelson Mandela read her poem “The child that died at Nyanga” in his first speech to the South African Parliament
      that she “lived again”.
