This simple human tale ponders the unpredictability of ways in which history can alter lives — and of the roads that choose us.“Government is actually the worst failure of civilized man.

There has never been a really good one, and even those that are most tolerable are arbitrary, cruel, grasping and unintelligent.” — H. L. Mencken23-year-old Chanda Radebe is up against a decision: he can continue to live in a shantytown of Soweto, South Africa, as an uninvolved, jobless dreamer — or join forces with the charismatic would-be revolutionary David Themba, whose organization, Kusasa, though little more than a gang, aspires to be a viable alternative to South Africa’s bloated political parties.

If, that is, it can survive clashes with local police, rival gangs, and David’s self-destructive motives.Pulling Chanda in yet another direction is his cousin Bornwell Malaba, an apprentice game ranger in a luxury safari lodge. Indifferent to politics, Bornwell wants only a life of peace in the wilderness for himself — and respectable, safe conformity for Chanda. Both become increasingly unlikely when American businessman Alex Stanzis becomes lost in Soweto following a vacation at Bornwell’s lodge.

The cousins try to help him after he attracts the unwelcome attention of David Themba — and get embroiled in far more complications than they bargained for while simply trying to do the decent thing.Set against the backdrop of a South Africa on the verge of its first-ever free elections, Season of Ash serves as a reminder that history is as unpredictable as the ways in which it can alter one’s life. Chanda’s struggle to make a decision, Bornwell’s yearning for peace, and David’s ominous destiny converge in an elegantly simple tale of the roads that choose us.
