Not With My Gun focuses on the emrging black elite of the early post-apartheid era. A successful black filmmaker throws a party for his three life-long friends to celebrate on the evening before one of them is to get married, and they catch a white burglar red-handed in the house. How do these four middle-class black men treat the terrified white criminal they have apprehended? How do they manage their intuitive desire for revenge? [Van Heerden (2008)]. p 156.
