Synopsis

Before they meet, in the days when South Africa still had apartheid, newspaper editor Donald Woods and political activist Steve Biko are on opposite sides of the fence. Woods is critical of Biko, but will soon change his mind - when he realises all Biko wants is justice for the oppressed majority of South Africans. When Biko is killed in police custody, Woods is determined to honour his fallen friend by getting the truth out to the world even if it means putting his own life at risk.

What our educators say

"Some of them saw a clip from Wakolda (The German Doctor) on TV recently and really wanted to watch it. So I thought I’d take a chance, not expecting them to watch the whole film but the majority were absolutely gripped. "
