Catch a Fire2006 Action/Adventure | Drama | Suspense/Thriller
Based on the real-life story of Patrick Chamusso, this political thriller spans the years from South Africa's turbulent 1980s to the present day. Patrick is an oil refinery employee and soccer player who is apolitical--until he and his wife are brutalized by government-sanctioned terror squads. Shocked into action, Patrick reorients his sense of self and purpose. Even as policeman Nic Vos further insinuates himself into the lives of Patrick and his family, Patrick becomes a rebel fighter and political operative, staging daring solo attacks against the brutal apartheid regime. Change must and will come, not only for South Africa but also for Patrick, Nic, and those closest to them.
