During the year of 1965, a 10 year old girl going to school in South Africa finds that she has more to deal with than her studies. State authorities examine her, reclassify her as colored, and she is removed from the institution. Abraham, her father, combats through the tribunals to have the categorization overruled, although Sandra's parents are stunned. The narrative escalates to a worldwide scandal, and media strain drives the legislation to alter the situation. Her lifestyle becomes living as a colored girl in South Africa for the very first time, even when living in a home with no running water and no sanitation. Though Sandra seems more at home in this neighborhood, she yearns to get a reunion and desperately misses her parents being together. Sandra's dad makes efforts but regularly becomes thwarted by her mom. Late in his life, when he's too ill to do anything by himself, he requests that his wife reconsider to take Sandra to visit him. Sandra's mom rejects his petition, furious that his new-found remorse had appeared after he'd stubbornly ignored her own mental pain for an entire decade.
