Synopsis:
Rugby had long been viewed in South Africa as a game for the white population, and the country's success in the sport has been a true source of Afrikaner pride. When the 50-year-old policies and entrenched injustices of apartheid were finally overthrown in 1994, Nelson Mandela's new government began rebuilding a nation badly in need of racial unity. So the world was watching when South Africa played host to the 1995 Rugby World Cup. Though they had only one non-white player, the South African Springboks gained supporters of all colours as they made an improbable run into the final match where they beat the heavily favoured New Zealand team.
When Mandela himself marched to the centre of the pitch cloaked in a Springbok jersey and shook hands with the captain of the South African team, two nations became one. Morgan Freeman and director Cliff Bestall tell the emotional story of that cornerstone moment and what it meant to South Africa's healing process.
