120 min • History, Politics & World Affairs • 2014
Decades after South Africa celebrated the advent of democracy in 1994, it's hard to believe the ‘Mandela miracle’ nearly didn’t happen. In an orgy of countrywide violence, some were intent on derailing the first free elections. Now, for the first time, those responsible for countless deaths and widespread mayhem explain how they nearly brought South Africa to its knees. This film is a chilling look at what these hard men did to thwart democracy, but how they have now made an uneasy peace with the ‘Rainbow Nation’ in their own different ways.
