They risked their lives to tell the world of the brutality and violence associated with the first free elections in post Apartheid South Africa in the early 90s. This intense political period brought out their best work (two won Pulitzers) but cost them a heavy price. Based on the book of the same name by Marinovich and Silva, the film stars Ryan PhillippeMalin Akermanand Taylor Kitsch and explores the thrill, danger and moral questions associated with exposing the truth.
