In the year 1874, Fiela Komoetie, a coloured woman of Wolwekraal in the Lange Kloof district, finds a baby – a white boy – on her front porch. Fiela decides to keep the child and raise him as one of her own, and names him Benjamin Komoetie. In the dense Knysna Forest at Kom-se-Bos, the Van Rooyen family mourns the disappearance of their son, Lukas. Fiela's “secret” is discovered nine years later, when two census men see the white boy at her home. They inform the local magistrate, who reopens the Lukas van Rooyen missing person case. He sets out to determine
whether Lukas van Rooyen and Benjamin Komoetie are, indeed, one and the same child who disappeared 12 years ago. Both mothers plead their case in court to convince the magistrate that the boy should be returned to his rightful parent.
