Outstanding documentary
9 June 2016 | by knightchipSee all my reviews

This is a story of hope and unity; both these things are found through the game of rugby in South Africa in 1995. In the previous year, 1994, blacks in South Africa were give the right to vote and they voted into office, Nelson Mandela as president. President Mandala was the countries first black president and he understood the need for unity within the country. What good would come of giving black's the right to vote and in electing South Africa's first black President if the country remained divided by race?

President Mandela understood the opportunity presented to him in 1995 as South Africa hosted the World Cup. The Springbok's were South Africa's rugby team. Most American's know little about rugby and the World Cup. I know so little about the game I needed to consult Wikipedia for my questions. The World Cup is a sports competition held every four years and a different country hosts the World Cup every four years.

Greatness has a sense of timing. With the worlds attention on both South Africa and the World Cup being held in South Africa the Springbok's played a significant role in 1995 World Cup.

This is one of the best documentaries I've ever seen. It's one of those documentaries that makes you feel good about the Human Race. I highly recommend this documentary!
