Synopsis

Taking place in South Africa, the opera/musical begins with the black priest, Stephen Kumalo, pining for his son Absalom, who has long since left home to earn money for his future education. Reverend Kumalo has had no word from Absalom in a year. Reverend Kumalo soon finds out that his son has been arrested and condemned for killing a white man. Before Absalom is hung for his crime, Reverend Kumalo and the murdered man's father, James Jarvis, begin a journey together towards compassion and understanding instead of loathing and retaliation.
