Nelson Mandela and the people of South Africa showed the world that conquering institutionalized racism could be done. In The Syringa Tree, Elizabeth, a white South African, shares the story of her black caretaker and of generations of family straining against the chains of apartheid. Love conquers fear as two gifted actresses fill the stage with the people, music, and verdant countryside of South Africa from 1963 to present.
