In 1963, Nelson Mandela, along with nine other South Africans, some Black and some Jewish, risk their lives to free their country from segregation and are arrested for sabotage. In this historical thriller, a Jewish Afrikaner lawyer, Bram Fischer, puts his life and career in jeopardy to defend them and bring an end to Apartheid. Faced with a possible death sentence, Fischer defends the activists against charges of treason. As he fights to expose the corrupt system, Fischer attempts to hide his own ties to the resistance. This riveting drama explores South Africa’s struggle against racism, and the little-known Jewish figures who sought to end discrimination in their country.
