The story of Mier accounts for two days in the lives of Oupa, a San hunter/gatherer who lives alone in the desert, and Boetie, a ‘coloured’ boy from a nearby settlement where people were relocated to the desert. Boetie struggles with inner demons when the older man instils his traditional values on the stubborn and proud youngster. Over the course of the story, the greater world of these characters is revealed, and we find out that they are hunting on this land illegally.
