Abstract:

James Gregory is a racist South African guard whose certainties of life are shaken to the core. During a twenty-year span, James was Nelson Mandela's prison warden. The film shows the daily application of a major historic abomination, known as Apartheid, as seen through the eyes of the average White South African. These are 'ordinary' people who are neither heroes nor villains, but obtuse conformists. The violence of the system on its white citizens was considerably more hidden than on its black ones, but it was violence all the same. Whites were obligated to remain as ignorant as possible or be persecuted by the status quo.
