Synopsis
For over forty years, South Africa was governed by the most notorious form of racial domination since Nazi Germany. When it finally collapsed, those who had enforced Apartheid's rule wanted amnesty for their crimes. Their victims wanted justice. As a compromise, the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) was formed. Now as it investigates the crimes of Apartheid, the Commision is bringing together victims and perpetrators to reveal South Africa's brutal past in the hopes of paving the way to a peaceful future. For two years filmmakers Reid and Hoffman have followed this unprecedented post-apartheid commission that seeks to heal wounds left by decades of violence and deceit: The parents of a slain American Fulbright scholar travel to South Africa to meet with the mother of their daughter's murderer; a former South African policeman, who admits to killing anti-apartheid activist Fort Calata, seeks absolution from his window... the film embraces the contradictions inherent in confonting truths.
