On the Wire
(On the Wire)

by Elaine PROCTOR

Wouter was a soldier with the South African army for eight years. Back home with his wife, he tries to adjust to civilian life within the white community who feels more and more terrorised by the black youth protesting movement. Deeply affected by the atrocities he witnessed and took part in, Wouter gradually loses his ability to live within the strict Calvinist society. His sexual behaviour becomes more and more violent and lewd. The irreversible escalation of his attention caused by racism ruins his mental balance. He has turned into a wild beast on the alert and ready to kill.
