    When Morning Comes - It's 1976 in South Africa.The lives of four Joburg youths from diverse walks of life come together in an interesting plot, set in the heart of what is to be the most stirring and defining student uprising in apartheid South Africa.When Morning Comes tells the story of the intersections in the lives of Zanele, a black female student organiser living in Soweto, plotting against the apartheid government; Jack, an Oxford-bound white student, spending his last days before varsity burning miles on his beat-up Mustang and crashing other people's parties; Meena, of South Asian background who spends most of her days working in her father's shop; and Thabo, the tsotsi. These intersections are woven into a historic landmark in South Africa's struggle for equality and offer an impeccably researched and vivid snapshot of South African society on the eve of the uprising that changed it forever.When Morning Comes threads together a secret network of students across the township, a failed political plot, a murdered teacher, a powerful police agent with a vendetta, and teenage life in between.In 1976, the students rise and there will be violence when morning comes.
