Andrew Mlangeni, the 11th accused in the infamous Rivonia Trial, escaped the death penalty to spend 26 years on Robben Island in the cell next door to Nelson Mandela. He looks back over his life and what drove him to give up everything in the fight for freedom. And in the face of death.
This film takes an intimate look at the sacrifices made by those committed to the ideals of justice and equality. What drove the heroes that made South Africa the miracle it is today? Telling the tale of the collective effort it takes to create a revolution, we shine the light on those relegated to the margins of history.
As a nation starts to grapple with the true meaning of Democracy, we remember that it takes more than one Mandela to free a nation. Andrew Mlangeni is one of those unsung heroes.
