    • Synopsis
    • This is the thrilling story of two political opponents. As a flawed ideology rips their country apart, one is driven to a fatal conclusion – he must assassinate his opponent. When this fails, and a new order restores peace, he is left with a troubled conscience. Then, his wife’s shock suicide jolts him into reconciling his past.
      In 2006, Adriaan Vlok, overseer of countless atrocities and deaths as Minister of Law and Order, felt called by God to meet with Frank Chikane, a man he had tried to kill during the bitter years of apartheid. Frank, who had endured torture, oppression and various assassination attempts on his life, reluctantly agreed.

      Set against the changing tides of South African politics and race relations, The Exchange, a political Chariots of Fire, is the true story of two extraordinary men, driven by a fervent belief, who showed the world the true and ultimate power of forgiveness.
