Description: Based on the best-selling book "When She Was White" by Judith Stone. Despite being born to white Afrikaner parents (Sam Neill and Alice Krige), Sandra (Oscar Nominee Sophie Okonedo) has dark skin and African features - an unexpected legacy from her ancestors. Expelled from school and shunned by society, she begins an illicit love affair with Petrus (Tony Kgoroge), a black man. Torn between her family and her heart, Sandra struggles against hardship and racial intolerance, and ultimately triumphs against all odds during the apartheid era.
