Follows four cases over a two-year period that were brought before South Africa's Truth and Reconciliation Commission which investigates the crimes of apartheid, by bringing together victims and perpetrators to relive South Africa's brutal history. In so doing South Africa is showing the rest of the world that even the most bitter conflicts can be addressed through honesty and communication, providing the most definitive record of one of the most ambitious and innovative attempts at social reconciliation without precedent in human history.
