Catch a Fire

[cert 12, 101 mins]

Catch a Fire is the real-life story of a South African
hero's journey to freedom. In the country's turbulent
and divided times in the 1980s, Patrick Chamusso is
an oil refinery foreman and soccer coach who is
apolitical - until he and his wife Precious are jailed.
Patrick is stunned into action against the country's
oppressive reigning system, even as police Colonel Nic
Vos further insinuates himself into the Chamussos'
lives.
