The term "bergie" is a South Africanism that refers to people that are homeless, since they usually sought refuge on the slopes of Table Mountain (in Afrikaans, ‘Tafelberg’). When a law enforcement officer has to remove homeless people to make way for a 10km fun-run, he has to navigate the complex intersection of the law and personal responsibility when confronted with the dignity of those often ignored.
