Award-winning documentary that follows the attempt by a white Zimbabwean farmer to take President Robert Mugabe to an international court on charges of racism and human rights abuse. One of the few remaining white farmers left in Zimbabwe, Mike Campbell has witnessed firsthand the effect Mugabe's land seizure programme has had on the country. Ostensibly aimed at redistributing white-owned land to poor black Zimbabweans, the programme, instigated in 2000, has left once profitable farms lying idle and brought widespread food shortages and famine to the general population. As the 2008 election looms, the 74 year-old farmer, accompanied by his son-in-law Ben Freeth, begins his fight for justice.
