As South Africa's Public Protector, Thuli Madonsela's job is to expose corruption. With calm in her voice she takes on President Zuma, despite death threats and violent protests. Director Shameela Seedat follows Thuli Madonsela's last year as Public Protector. In the process, a portrait emerges of a society in turmoil, a struggle against corruption, and of the stubborn legacy of apartheid. A compelling and inspiring story of a courageous leader, outstanding lawyer, and single mother who stands up for the South African people to preserve the integrity of their democracy. "This is a deeply South African story, but one that feels very much in line with this current historical moment around the world." (Variety)
