Beyers Naudé, a white Afrikaner and pastor, realizes the inhumanity of the South African apartheid system after a massacre in the early 1960s. He spends the rest of his life as one of the few South African whites to speak out against it, at great personal sacrifice. He gives impassioned speeches while still managing to be humble. One of the more inspirational documentaries of the many that have been made on apartheid.
