Apartheid is rampant in South Africa, 1963. When ten men, including Nelson Mandela, are arrested on a farm in Rivonia for conspiracy against the repressive South African government, tenacious lawyer Bram Fisher steps up to the challenge as lead counsel.

On 11 July 1963, the South African police raided the Liliesleaf farm in Rivonia, north of Johannesburg. Lawyer Bram Fischer was a regular guest at the farm, but he happened to not be present at the time of the raid. This is why he was able to defend the activists in court. Director Jean van de Velde focuses on the story of Bram Fischer, who passionately committed himself to ending apartheid and took substantial risks in the process.

PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS FILM IS IN AFRIKAANS AND ENGLISH, WITH DUTCH SUBTITLES.

★★★★ NRC 'een sterk, op feiten gebaseerd rechtbankdrama over de strijd tegen apartheid. Met Peter Paul Muller als intrigerende held.'

★★★★ de Volkskrant 'Een knap, ingetogen, maar geen moment fletse hoofdrol voor Peter Paul Muller.'

★★★★ de Limburger 'Van de Velde maakte een doorwrocht rechtbankdrama met thrillerelementen dat het leven van Fischer volledig recht doet.'
