An apolitical family man transforms into a belligerent freedom fighter after being tortured in this powerful film by acclaimed director Phillip Noyce. In 1980, white supporters of apartheid hid behind their bogus Anti-Terrorist Squad title as they tortured black South Africans who were fighting to regain their basic civil rights. Nic Vos (Tim Robbins) was such a supporter who led his volatile squad in subduing these freedom fighters deemed terrorists in support of the African National Congress. Patrick Chamusso (Derek Luke), a father, husband, soccer coach and refinery foreman without a politically rebellious thought in his mind, was falsely accused of blowing up part of the refinery. He was tortured so severely that upon his release, he became the freedom fighter he was initially suspected of being. Shawn Slovo, daughter of a celebrated freedom fighter, wrote this eye-opening film that people should catch in theaters.
