Under apartheid in South Africa, Col. Kruger (Nigel Hawthorne) is a merciless interrogator who symbolizes an era's cruelty. Among his victims is professor Marty Strydom (Eric Stoltz), who is jailed for engaging in rebellious activities. Recognizing a willful spirit, Kruger works hard to break his subject. But when, 10 years later, the tables have turned and Kruger is put to question by the new government, he must face an ex-prisoner-turned-questioner (Louis Gossett Jr.).
