An Act Of Defiance

SYNOPSIS:

In this riveting historical drama set in South Africa’s era of segregation, 10 political activists, including Nelson Mandela and his inner circle of Jewish and Apartheid fighters, face a possible death sentence for conspiracy to commit sabotage. Bram Fischer, a gutsy, sympathetic white, Afrikaner lawyer, risks his career and freedom to defend these men, attempting to hide his own ties to the resistance.
