Synopsis by Jason Buchanan

Discover how a former political prisoner overcame a youth in poverty and nearly three decades behind bars to emerge as one of the most respected, admired leaders of our time. As a result of his efforts to smash apartheid in South Africa, Nelson Mandela was handed a stiff prison sentence. But while his body was incarcerated, his soul was not. Released in 1990, Mandela successfully ushered in a new democratic era in his home country when he was elected president just four years later. In this documentary, we get to know the man behind the remarkable legend.
