In segregated 1970s South Africa, black nationalist Steven Biko (Denzel Washington) and white newspaper editor Donald Woods (Kevin Kline) are unlikely friends with a common goal -- ending apartheid -- in this true story based on Woods's books Biko and Asking for Trouble. When Biko's beliefs lead him to prison and a deadly fate, Woods rallies to expose the injustice. Director Richard Attenborough's film earned Washington his first Oscar nod.
