A real story

A great lesson in humility, perseverance and understanding.
The story of a unique friendship and the awakening of consciousness.

South Africa, 1968. Twenty-five million blacks live under the domination of a white minority. Under the brutal regime of apartheid, blacks do not have the right to vote, freedom of movement, access to education or the right to own land, businesses or even housing. Determined to not let go of power, this white minority imprisons black leaders on Robben Island.
James Gregory, a typical Afrikaner, racist and believer in the virtues of apartheid, grew up on a farm in the Transkei where he learned to speak Xhosa and Zulu languages??. This characteristic made ??him the ideal man for the job of prison guard on Robben Island, and was responsible for monitoring the prisoner Nelson Mandela and his comrades. This plan will, however, has twist. To learn more about Nelson Mandela, Gregory starts to question the system of apartheid and becomes progressively advocate of a free South Africa and democratic.

Mandela, My Prisoner, My Friend, tells us, in the first person, the relationship as surprising as deep linking these two men and, through their unique friendship, we discover the awakening of a conscience.
