This uneven but intriguing local drama examines the relationship between the country’s violent and traumatic past and its increasingly uncertain present through a mash up of action, courtroom drama and a dash of supernatural chills. Hlomla Dandala stars as Azania Maqoma, the fiery leader of a band of heavily armed mysterious vigilante freedom fighters.
When they invade a courtroom on the day of deliberation in a high-profile murder case with racial overtones they take everyone there, and the nation at large, hostage as the fate of the accused is placed in the hands of the public on national television in a drama that reaches the highest levels of government and back into the deep wounds of the apartheid era.
