Stephen Kumalo (Canada Lee) is a black preacher living in South Africa, circa 1946. When his son is accused of murdering a prominent white man, Kumalo goes to Johannesburg to offer his support. With the aid of a local clergyman (Sidney Poitier), he eventually meets James Jarvis (Charles Carson), the father of the murdered youth. Enemies at first, Kumalo and Jarvis gradually learn to respect one another, a symbol of the healing that would eventually destroy apartheid.
