Synopsis:

looks at apartheid from the black viewpoint and with its on-the-spot realism has greater impact than 'Cry Freedom', 'A Dry White Season' or 'A World Apart'. Shot secretly by Oliver Schmitz in Soweto, the plight of poor blacks is vividly exposed within the framework of a thriller in which an irresponsible small-time crook is gradually forced to accept political realities.
