Without Walter Sisulu, there wouldn't have been Nelson Mandela. Sisulu was the one who found Mandela and persuaded him to join the ANC. The world came to know about Sisulu during the Rivonia Trial of 1963–64. Mandela, accused # 1, read a speech during the trial justifying why the ANC had resorted to violence. Sisulu, accused # 2, was the first of the group to be cross-examined. Transported back into a world of secret court sessions during the apartheid nightmare, the viewer discovers the testimony of an exceptional man who instigated one of the turning points of 20th-century history.
