Morgan Freeman stars as the real-life, fearless South African leader Nelson Mandela in this moving film about breaking barriers and overcoming odds.
As Mandela, Freeman sees the game of rugby as a way to unite South Africa and diffuse any tensions that may exist between Black natives and White Africans who traveled to South Africa in the 17th century — Afrikaners. After much triumph and strife, Freeman soon finds that bringing together a segmented country will take all the courage, energy and power he can muster.
