How do white South Africans deal with their fears of crime and violence? Fear causes people to become more insular, more insecure and the culture of fear feeds on itself. Like the crocodiles that carpet the country's riverbanks, some survive without evolving, living with their fears. Others make fear their friend and evolve in ways that you would never imagine. Forest of Crocodiles is a unique and thought-provoking insight into South Africa today; a no-holds barred portrait of an isolated community pushed to the limits of their imagination.
