Synopsis

What does Nelson Mandela do after becoming president of South Africa? He rejects revenge, forgives oppressors who jailed him 27 years for his fight against apartheid and finds hope of national unity in an unlikely place: the rugby field. Rugby is a divisive sport but Mandela believes it can become a universal language. Clint Eastwood directs an uplifting film about a team and a people inspired to greatness. Morgan Freeman is Mandela, who asks the national rugby team to do the impossible: win the World Cup and unite their nation.
