On March 3, 1986, at the height of apartheid's death squads, seven young men are killed in an ambush by police in the suburb of Guguletu in Cape Town, South Africa. Police say these men were ‘terrorists’, that they were so heavily armed that arrest was impossible, that they had no option but to kill them. A witness, however, saw that one of the men who was shot had his hands up in the act of surrendering. This fact led to the extraordinary unraveling of the real truth ten years later by investigators of the new democratic government's Truth & Reconciliation Commission. The journey of this film is as gripping as any detective story and unfolds in that genre. The event distils a period when South Africa was chillingly close to a major civil war. Its universal message reveals with shocking reality what happens when power corrupts political systems and assassinates its opponents.
