ABSTRACT
The author focuses on the stories about individuals' response to the social inequality in South Africa. It narrates the story of Julian and Ena Hewitt, a white middle-class South African couple, along with their two young children, who left a gated community in Pretoria and lived for a month in a shack with no electricity or running water. He also discusses the story of a luxury hotel's development of a shanty town, and concludes that new relationships often kindle needed personal conversion.
