In the final years of Nationalist rule, four ANC cadres return as soldiers to South Africa, having left as students in 1976. A specialist unit reporting to Chris Hani, their mission is to carry out acts of war in the country of their birth. When the four are eventually captured, they face the ultimate penalty. Narrated by their lawyer as the trial progresses, this true story is an insider's account of men driven to extremes for an ideal. This is a story of the foot soldiers, and of the terrible price they paid.
