Contents/Summary

Summary
Although Apartheid has officially been history for more than ten years, power relations in South Africa have not really changed. In order to explore the surviving post-colonial hierarchy today, Pacek focused on a rubber production plant and three men involved in its operation, each of whom vehemently promotes his own interests. Stach, originally from Poland, is the factory owner; Gert is a white South African and the company's manager; Andreas is an impoverished worker from the Zulu tribe. As the story unfolds, the factory becomes a symbol of South African society in general. While the workers endeavor to improve their standing, their employers strive to maximize profits. A poignant story of the struggle for rights and humane treatment in the workplace.
