There have been a number of movies about apartheid in South Africa and the horrific events that occurred. This movie doesn't present anything not covered in other films but is still strong enough to recommend. Rowen Elmes is effective enough without being standout, as the empathatic son of history teacher, Ben du Toit (Donald Sutherland). He supports his father's stand against the injustice and brutality of the Police, after the brutal death of his black South African friend Jonathan, portrayed briefly by Bekhithemba Mpofu.
