(1978 - Starring Denzel Washington and Kevin Kline) Donald Woods is chief editor of the liberal newspaper Daily Dispatch in South Africa. He has written several editorials critical of the views of Steve Biko. But after meeting him for the first time, Woods changes his opinion. They meet several times, and Woods and his family began to get attention from the security police. When Steve Biko dies in police custody, Woods writes a book about him. The only way to get it published is for Woods himself to illegally escape the country.
