Set in mid-1980s South Africa when apartheid held sway over the nation, this striking political drama echoes the drug drama "Traffic" in its realistic, multilayered approach to historical drama. While uneasy talks begin between an intelligence officer (Mark Strong) and an imprisoned Nelson Mandela (Clarke Peters), a powerful businessman (Jonny Lee Miller) makes overtures to African National Congress leader Thabo Mbeki (Chiwetel Ejiofor). With William Hurt, Derek Jacobi.
