The incredible true story of the deep bond that develops between political prisoner Nelson Mandela (Dennis Haysbert) and James Gregory (Joseph Fiennes), the racist white South African who was Mandela's prison guard for more than 20 years. Based on Gregory's controversial memoir, Goodbye Bafana, The Color of Freedom powerfully chronicles the life-changing journey both men experience during Mandela's imprisonment—as one man confronts the racism he has always known, the other's struggle for freedom makes him a worldwide symbol of South Africa's heroic fight for democracy.
