In a South Africa torn by civil war, Michael K sets out to take his mother
back to her rural home. On the way there she dies, leaving him alone in an
anarchic world of brutal roving armies. Imprisoned, Michael is unable to
bear confinement and escapes, determined to live with dignity. Life and
Times of Michael K goes to the centre of human experience -- the need for
an interior, spiritual life, for some connections to the world in which we
live, and for purity of vision.
