This documentary film focuses on newlyweds Gerrie and Louise. Gerrie is a former member of the South African military and was involved in operations in support of apartheid, including operations where civilians in opposition to apartheid were tortured. Louise is a former journalist who covered the protests leading to the fall of apartheid and then became the principal investigator for South Africa's Truth and Reconciliation Commission. Using interviews and documentary footage, the film looks at some of the operations Gerrie played a part in, and at some of the work of the Truth and Reconciliation Committee exposing the actions of former government officials involved in maintaining apartheid.
