In 1987, Sibi Makhale is allowed to visit her dying father in the maximum security prison of Robben Island. The daughter of banned parents, Sibi comes face to face with two suspicious and frightened white schoolteachers resident on the island. It will prove to be a life-changing experience for all of them. Over two decades later, Sibi returns to the Island – now a World Heritage Site – with her two born-free sons. It is an attempt at closure for her, an adventure for her boys, and for the reader a remarkable journey back from the dark past. Panorama celebrates the people who through their shared passion for a beloved country managed to communicate and even laugh with each other in spite of fear, guilt and prejudice. This story about South Africa’s yesterday and today is inspired by Pieter-Dirk Uys’s internationally acclaimed play, Panorama.
