Summary
When anti-apartheid activist Shack Twala is freed from prison, he quickly runs into trouble with the police. British engineer Keogh helps Twala elude a sadistic government official, but as both men, now fugitives, race 900 miles to cross the border to safety, they are drawn into a conspiracy much bigger and deadlier than they realize
