Synopsis by Dan Pavlides
The descendants of Dutch settlers in South Africa battle the British Army for control of the country. The Boers have a mysterious leader known only as "the rider," whose guerilla tactics are a thorn in the side of the Queen's elite forces. Financed by the prosperous white farmers of the region, the Boers set up a racially segregated society that later became known as apartheid. This lavishly costumed epic portrays the racial injustices that would continue for at least another 80 years.
