        In the Arms Of A Lion

In the Arms Of A Lion

Elegant and moving, shocking and uplifting, this coming out story has been critically acclaimed at four Australian festivals. In the Arms of a Lion traces a young man's growing awareness of his sexuality, mirrored in the violent racial oppression of the explosive final years of Apartheid in South Africa.
