What choices do white South Africans make when addressing their fears of crime and violence?  Some are well resourced while others are ingeniously resourceful.  The consequences are regression and isolation or freedom from fear.

Like crocodiles, fearful and well-resourced people can survive without evolving.  But some people refuse to submit to their fears.  For them, the future is an unknown country to be explored.

How does this divided community co-exist?  These people are being pushed to the limits of their imaginations.  To understand them is to feel their fears and walk in a forest of unknown things.
