Based on a short story Out of Bounds, The Playground tells the story of Rosa, a young girl, who is sent by her mother to be the first black child in an all-white school where many parents remained hostile to Nelson Mandela's new integration laws. As Rosa's world collides with that of Hennie (the white boy whom Rosa's mother has looked after since he was a baby) both are forced to overcome their fears and show the courage to face each other.
