When white South African professor Mark Strydom (Eric Stoltz) attends an Amnesty International concert in Zimbabwe, he is arrested and interrogated by Colonel Kruger (Nigel Hawthorne) for attempting to subvert the government. Kruger convinces Strydom that he has been betrayed by his family and friends, and the professor eventually commits suicide. A decade later, Kruger is arrested himself for atrocities committed during his time in power. His cross examiner (Louis Gosset Jr) is black, and knows that the file relating to Strydom is one of the few remaining which could incriminate the colonel.
