A nation teeters on the brink of civil war in this real-life political thriller about the negotiations that led to the end of apartheid in South Africa. Seemingly doomed to failure, the secret talks were held against a backdrop of terrorism, spying, blackmail, and escalating unrest. The international cast includes Chiwetel Ejiofor (American Gangster, Kinky Boots) as President Thabo Mbeki; William Hurt (Damages) as Professor Will Esterhuyse; Jonny Lee Miller (Eli Stone, Trainspotting) as British businessman and negotiator Michael Young; Derek Jacobi (Gosford Park) as Young’s boss; and Clarke Peters ("The Wire") as Nelson Mandela. David Tennant hosts.
