The daughter's rape is symbolic for South Africa's aparthied history. An allegory to the truth and reconciliation commission. No real justice at the end the father has to coexist with his daughter's rapist! Even absurd she is forced to marry her rapist.The father and daughter are a white family but the issue is'nt about race but it is about recieving justice. In the movie no justice for daughter and in South Africa no justice for vitims of aphartied!
