Soon there must come a day when I can say for myself: This and that
I shall do, this and that I shall not. Philida is the mother of
four children by Francois Brink, the son of her master. The year is
1832 and the Cape is rife with rumours about the liberation of the
slaves. Philida decides to risk her whole life by lodging a
complaint against Francois, who has reneged on his promise to set
her free. His father has ordered him to marry a white woman from a
prominent Cape Town family, and Philida will be sold on to owners
in the harsh country up north. Unwilling to accept this fate,
Philida continues to test the limits of her freedom, and with the
Muslim slave Labyn she sets off on a journey across the great
wilderness on the banks of the Gariep River, to the far north of
Cape Town. "Philida" is an unforgettable story of one woman's
determination to survive and be free.
