The changing landscape of post-Apartheid South African politics and lifestyles is portrayed through three queer relationships: a successful black real estate woman who is cheating on her white wife, their gorgeous bohemian daughter dating a gender nonconforming women in the Soweto ghettos, and a white male queer studies professor pining for his black male lover from the revolutionary days. While each plot line survives on its own, the co-mingling of the stories is where While You Weren’t Looking becomes true genius.
