When Roy, a black Surinamese student, learns that his mother is seriously ill, he borrows money from his Dutch girlfriend to leave Amsterdam and return home. However, once he arrives in his native country, Roy finds himself enduring an inner struggle.  Culturally acclimated to the Netherlands, Roy questions his ethnic identity as he becomes reacquainted with the history of his nation, the customs of his parents and ancestors, as well as with the traditions of the Hindu community when he takes up with Rubia, a Hindu nurse.

While the country of Surinam may be "one people" or "wan pipel," Director Pim De la Parra illustrates a country with a diversity of communities, each imbued with its own particular customs, rituals, ethno-racial differences and prejudices. (Surinam/Netherlands, 1976, 111 min, Pim de la Parra, dir., Romance, Drama)
