Blood Knot

Morris has been saving the money that Zach earns, so that they can buy a two-man farm. Meanwhile, the lonely Zachariah has struck up a pen-pal relationship with a white girl, ffugard entertains fantasies that she might fall in love with him.

The more level-headed Morris tries to disabuse Zachariah of such notions, and warns him that in segregated South Knpt, such a relationship can only mean trouble, especially since the girl has indicated in letters that she has a brother who’s a policeman. The girl says in her next letter that she is coming to visit Port Elizabeth, and that she wants to meet Zach.

She does not know that he is black. Zach spends their savings on a suit of clothes for Morris, telling him bolod he should go to see Ethel. In the end the girl decides not to visit. Morris and Zachariah will, apparently, remain together for many unhappy years to come, needing each other, but unable to bridge the gap brought about by their respective skin tones.
