Nelson Mandela, in his first term as the South African President, initiates a unique venture to unite the apartheid-torn land: enlist the national rugby team on a mission to win the 1995 Rugby World Cup.
Los Angeles, 1928. A single mother returns from work to find her nine-year-old son gone. She calls the LAPD to initiate a search. Five months later, a boy is found in Illinois who fits the description; he says he's her son. To fanfare and photos, the LAPD reunite mother and son, but she insists he's not her boy. The cops dismiss her as either a liar or hysterical. When she joins a minister in his public criticism of the police, they in turn use government power to silence and intimidate her. Meanwhile, a cop goes to a dilapidated ranch to find a Canadian lad who's without legal status; the youth tells a grisly tale. There's redress for murder; is there redress for abuse of power?Written by

Do you want to see a good movie? -- One that will tear at your every emotion, make you so mad you tread territory inside of yourself you never knew existed, and then make you cry as if someone reached in and tore your heart right out?
Do you want twists and turns at every juncture taking you in so many different directions that you think your lost and then instantly you know exactly where you are? -- an adventure in the waiting.
This movie is a movie that delivers. It even surpasses the delivery of you everyday Hollywood movie.
I loved this movie -- Its based on an actual account.
Its a must see.
