Synopsis

Derek Luke portrays real-life hero Patrick Chamusso. Completely apolitical whilst toeing the hard line imposed on blacks by apartheid, Patrick is a family man, he and his wife Precious (Bonnie Henna), have two young daughters and he coaches a local boys’ soccer team in his spare time. Patrick’s job is as the foreman at the centrally located Secunda oil refinery, a symbol of South Africa’s self-sufficiency at a time when the world was protesting the country’s oppressive apartheid system.
