Storyline

Donald Woods is chief editor at the liberal newspaper Daily Dispatch in South Africa. He has written several editorials critical of the views of Steve Biko. But after having met him for the first time, he changes his views. They meet several times, and this means that Woods and his family get attention from the security police. When Steve Biko dies in police custody, he writes a book about Biko. The only way to get it published is for Woods himself to unlawfully escape the country.

Good drama movie14 February 2016

Gripping story about the fight for equality in South Africa, focusing on the struggle led by black activist Steve Biko, which was continued after his death by white newspaper editor Donald Woods. Intense, well acted and a realistic portrayal of a dark period in South Africa's history.
