Silhouettes of a large group of people, in shades light and dark, are depicted. They seem to be fighting, as was the case between races during apartheid, or possibly simply struggling to make their way towards a better future. The
tumultuous scene plays out under a bright guiding light: the work’s title alludes to a destination, perhaps the achievement of a South Africa based on the constitutional values of human dignity, equality and freedom.
