The Power of One
Tormented by racist bullies in boarding school, a white South African orphan named P.K. is sent to live with Doc (Armin Mueller-Stahl), a friend of his grandfather. There, the boy befriends a political prisoner (Morgan Freeman) who teaches him how to box. After years of witnessing injustice all around him, P.K. (Stephen Dorff) -- now 18 -- unites with a former boxing adversary (Alois Moyo) to fight the uphill struggle against apartheid.

A lackluster DVD. Decent image and sound, but few extras. A commentary and some additional information would be helpful in understanding the film's background.
