Based on the novel by Nobel Prize-winning author J.M. Coetzee, the story centers on the crisis of the conscience of the magistrate-a loyal servant of the Empire working in a tiny frontier town, doing his best to ignore an inevitable war with the "barbarians." After he witnesses the cruel and unjust treatment of prisoners of war, he reconsiders his role in the regime and carries out a quixotic act of rebellion.
