Independence Day takes place during Zimbabwe’s Independence day in 2013 at one of the few farms in the country that is still run by whites. The farm manager tells how the confiscation of the white farms affected his family during the last years. One of the farm workers tells how Independence Day represents the end of the white man oppression. On April 18, 1980, the colonial Rhodesia became the independent Zimbabwe. Since then, genocide and ethnic cleansing have taken place, and the economy has collapsed. Today both whites and blacks hope for a democratic fresh start for the country. Zimbabwe’s rebirth.
