The year is 1981 and South Africa’s white minority government is embroiled in a conflict on the Angolan border. Like all white boys over the age of 16, Nicholas Van der Swart is drafted for two years of compulsory military service to defend the apartheid regime from the threats of communism and “die swart gevaar” (the so-called black danger). But those aren't the only dangers Nicholas faces. He must survive the brutality of the army – something that becomes even more difficult when a connection is sparked between him and a fellow recruit.

In-theater screenings include an exclusive video intro from director & co-writer Oliver Hermanus.

IFC Center at Home online screenings include an exclusive Q&A with director & co-writer Oliver Hermanus.
