Young Nelson Mandela’s thrilling journey begins with his dying father’s wish that he become royal counsel to the king and the lasting admiration he feels for the village elders.
On trial for treason, Nelson’s marriage to second wife, Winnie, is affected by an uncertain future and the strain imposed by the government’s State of Emergency.
On the run, disguised as a chauffeur, Nelson lives in hiding from the South African government, hell bent on his elimination. Creating a military wing of the ANC, he leaves the country to train.
Imprisoned for life on Robben Island, along with his mentor Walter Sisulu, Nelson keeps up his resistance, refusing to stoop to the moral level of his racist jailers.
A more radical phase of the struggle crops up in the Seventies with Nelson, incarcerated for over a decade, winning over the young black Consciousness prisoners who are imprisoned on Robben Island.
After twenty seven years in prison, freedom for Mandela does not guarantee a free, democratic South Africa. Nelson must face betrayals, personal heartbreak, and the loss of his most trusted friend.
