Time Out says

Smith, the deaf and dumb son of a rural black preacher, refuses to accept the menial labour on offer in the small farming community where he's grown up. He tries to earn a living in the city, but this ends in assault, and his return home sparks off a cycle of vengeful violence. What Roodt's film lacks in subtlety, it makes up for in dirty authenticity. A hard-hitting independent venture (the director went on to make Sarafina!), completed and released against the odds in apartheid South Africa.
