The unforgettable friendship of two unforgettable men. The tension and terror that is present-day South Africa is powerfully portrayed in director Richard Attenborough's sweeping story of black activist Stephen Biko (Denzel Washington, Malcolm X), head of the'Black Consciousness'... movement who died in prison, and a liberal white newspaper editor who risks his own life to bring Biko's message to the world. After learning of apartheid's true horrors through Biko's eyes, editor Donald Woods (Kevin Kline, Wild, Wild West) discovers that his friend has been silenced by the police. Determined not to let Biko's message go unheard, Woods undertakes a perilous quest to escape South Africa and bring Biko's tale of courage to the world. This riveting, true story offers a stirring account of man at his most evil and most heroic.
