In 1963 ten South African men, some Black and some Jewish, are arrested for conspiring to commit sabotage against the Apartheid state. Led by fellow defendant Nelson Mandela while represented by courageous lawyer Bram Fischer, the group members plead not guilty. This powerful and captivating true story captures a seminal moment in the fight against racism and explores the little known role of South African Jews in consigning Apartheid to history. Awards: Dutch Film Awards Best Actor & Best Screenplay, Audience Award: Mill Valley Film Festival, Movies that Matter Film Festival.
