As the South African election approaches the Mabuza-McCleod family faces a dilemma - whether or not to return home to South Africa. What they do depends on what happens there on election day.

Written and recorded right up to the moment of broadcast today, the day of the election, this is the second in an occasional series of plays in which the lives of the central characters are shaped by real issues and events as they happen.
