In this riveting historical drama, Nelson Mandela and his inner circle of Black and Jewish supporters face a possible death sentence for conspiracy to commit sabotage during a raid in the South African town of Riviona. Bram Fischer, a sympathetic lawyer, risks his career and freedom to defend Mandela and his supporters. An Act of Defiance captures the dark period of South Africa’s history - Apartheid, while skillfully balancing a nail-biting political thriller.
