"Based on Mervyn Woodrow's satirical novel, this 1979 film is about land claims, with a difference. A stubborn farmer from the Transvaal platteland approaches government in Pretoria to check on his inheritance: a piece of land somewhere in the capital. His claim is received with consternation and civil servants keep referring him to higher authorities until he finds himself talking to the secretary to the minister of agriculture. Eventually the farmer learns, from a young and handsome facilitator with designs on his daughter, that the inheritance is land at Meintjieskop - where the Union Buildings, seat of executive government, are situated.
Furious about government delays and dishonesty, the farmer seizes the buildings and forces everybody out, even the prime minister. After advice from his wife and intervention by the agriculture minister, the farmer accepts another piece of land and leaves with government goodwill, a future son-in-law and the government's head tea-server." - mnetcorporate.co.za
