After 27 years in prison, freedom for Mandela does not guarantee a free, democratic South Africa. Nelson must face betrayals, personal heartbreak, and the loss of his most trusted friend, Oliver Tambo. Simultaneously, he must avert the possibility of civil war, end tribal warfare and stem the most bloody period in South Africa's history.

Madiba reveals the bold tactics he and his collaborators used to bring attention to their movement, and pays homage to many men and women who made sacrifices toward South Africa's quest for freedom.
