“Solomon and Marion” is the story of the unlikely friendship between:

Marion Banning, a white 63-year-old South African Woman of English descent. Marion is solid, has her feet on the ground – a wry sense of humor, generous and infinite need. She has lost her son and her husband and her will to live is diminished because of that.

Solomon Xaba, a young 19-year-old South African man of color from rural Xhoza. Inquisitive, aloof and fragile. He is thin because of a liver disease.

Lenny is a great guy: a good teacher, an excellent father, and a loving husband. So when his wife leaves him for a smooth-talking lothario who builds Walmarts, his life is shattered. While he consoles himself with watching his favorite movie, ‘To Kill a Mockingbird’, his best friend Mick takes matters into his own hands. Now Lenny must decide what he will stand up for and who he will stand up to. How far is too far to get back to happily-ever-after?
