An unforgettable film about the friendship of two men - a liberal white newspaper editor named Donald Woods
(Kevin Kline) and Stephen Biko (Denzel Washington), the black activist leader fighting to end
apartheid - during South Africa's most politically turbulent era of the century. The tension and terror of the
times is powerfully portrayed in director Richard Attenborough's sweeping story of the legendary Biko's
struggle and Wood's attempt to bring Biko's message to the world.
