Tense political thriller set against the backdrop of apartheid-era South Africa and based on true events. Patrick Chamusso (Derek Luke) is a 31-year-old black South African living the straight life in 1981; foreman at an oil refinery, football coach, family man and upstanding citizen. His calling comes when he and his wife Precious (Bonnie Mbuli) are questioned and blatantly accused of planting a bomb at the refinery where he works. The authorities, primarily one Police Colonel Nic Vos (Tim Robbins), so brutalise them in the process that Chamusso does in fact subsequently join the ANC and volunteer for active service in the shape of planting an actual bomb in the refinery.
