In the new South Africa everyone is equal: Blacks, Whites, Indians and Coloureds. On a train journey on the Shosholoza Express they encounter fragments of their past. Twenty years after the end of apartheid rule, everything has changed but nothing is as it should be. Travelling through modern cities, dilapidated townships and vast open spaces, the film tells a story of inner boundaries, prejudices still not overcome, unfulfilled hopes and simmering conflicts. Everyone is travelling on the same train, but not in the same compartment.
