Synopsis

After making the excellent drama Rabbit Proof Fence about the escape from virtual slavery of a trio of Aborigine girls in 1930s Australia, director Phillip Noyce made this fine thriller about life in 1980s South Africa in the time of apartheid (racial segregation). Despite the injustice that surrounds him, Patrick Chamusso doesn't care much about politics - his goal in life is to keep his white bosses happy and do well at his job as a foreman at a fuel refinery, and provide for his wife and two daughters. But when he is wrongly arrested as a terrorist suspect, his attitude changes - and he commits to working to change the racist regime that has so mistreated him.

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. "
