"...scorching, vivid... This is not just two people. It is the old South Africa and the new South Africa. It is a test of them both, and of the limits -- or not -- of forgiveness and empathy."The Guardian

This is optional.
Eugene de Kock was a paid white political assassin nick-named "Prime Evil" for his crimes against anti-apartheid activists. While serving his two life sentences, black psychologist Pumla Gobodo-Madikizela went to interview him hoping to seek humanity and forgiveness within the government-sanctioned monster. The thought-provoking interrogation moves from clinical to intimate in a cell where fear and compassion coexist.
