The powerful South African civil rights drama, the opening night at the UK International Jewish Film Festival, comes to JW3, by popular demand.

1963, South Africa. Ten men – some black, some Jewish – are arrested for conspiring to commit sabotage against the Apartheid state and its government.

Led by fellow defendant Nelson Mandela and represented by courageous lawyer Bram Fischer, the group members plead not guilty, shifting attention instead to the corrupted and grossly unjust political system. This powerful and captivating true story captures a seminal moment in the fight against racism and explores the little known of South African Jews in consigning Apartheid to history.
