In a rural Afrikaner town, where strength and masculinity are prized above all, Johan is set apart by his hidden homosexual nature. One day, Johan’s fiercely religious mother brings home an Afrikaans orphan. The new boy, Pieter, is wracked by drug withdrawal and refuses to believe in God, but under Johan’s guidance, he improves and the two partake in the annual maize harvest together. As Pieter gets stronger, his appetite for sex with girls and drugs returns. But despite his transgressions, the manipulative Pieter wins over the family with his show of strength and heterosexuality. The brothers lock into a dangerous struggle for power, using their hidden lives and broken pasts as weapons against each other.
