    South Africa, 2000. The Truth and Reconciliation Commission has arrived in Smitsrivier, opening a window onto a bloody past, and dragging three people in its wake.

Alex Mpondo, now a celebrated politician, has found himself back where he was 18 years ago - reliving his ordeal in the hope of exposing the truth. And Dirk Hendricks, ex-police officer and torturer, has been brought out of jail to confess his crimes before the Commission.
