Laurens van der Post explores a region of shadow in the human mind in this series of highly personal films.

Himself of Afrikaans origin, and as a young man one of the first to oppose racialism in South Africa, writer and explorer Laurens van der Post has long sought to discover the causes at the heart of racial prejudice.
In this film he goes on a journey of rediscovery to South Africa and elsewhere. But his journey is also an inward one, to the dark places of the human mind. The conclusions he reaches challenge our whole way of looking at racial prejudice.
