Nelson Mandela's long struggle against the racist minority regime in South Africa is legendary. In Mandela's shadow there is one of his most loyal fellow freedom fighters – a white South African.
The film portrays the life of this campaigner who is less well known in South Africa and worldwide.
He was imprisoned for 22 years – sentenced as a bomb maker and terrorist; branded a 'traitor to the white race'.
But even the hatred of his fellow white South Africans could not break his spirit. Goldberg triumphed over torture and imprisonment, went into exile in England and as an activist witnessed the birth of the South African democracy. The now 75 year old ANC veteran lives in Cape Town and is as ever involved in the struggle for human dignity in times of turbulent transition.
