South Africa, 1995. After surviving years in prison for his efforts to end injustice, Nelson Mandela (Freeman--Million Dollar Baby) has led his country to defeat apartheid and been elected President, but the legacy of 50 years of hatred still threatens to tear South Africa apart. Now, Mandela reaches out to Francois Pienaar (Damon--The Departed), captain of the Springboks, South Africa's national rugby team -- long a symbol of white oppression. By championing the Springboks' thousand-to-one chance, Mandela, Pienaar and the Springboks unite 43 million South Africans into one nation dreaming of winning the World Cup of Rugby!
