Each episode of ORDINARY PEOPLE chronicles an event in South Africa through the eyes of three or four "ordinary" people. Some events are large in scope, others less momentous, but through these individuals of diverse backgrounds and dissimilar points of view, each program provides insight into the collective South African conscience and the problems confronting a fragile and evolving new society.
