Plot Synopsis:

Screen giants Sidney Poitier (In the Heat of the Night) and Michael Caine (The Holcroft Covenant) ignite the screen as two very different men suddenly bound together and running for their lives in this suspenseful and politically pertinent chase thriller set in South Africa's powder keg of racial strife. When anti-apartheid activist Shack Twala (Poitier) is freed from prison, he quickly runs into trouble with the police. British engineer Keogh (Caine) helps Twala elude a sadistic government official (Nicol Williamson, Excalibur), but as both men, now fugitives, race 900 miles to cross the border to safety, they are drawn into a conspiracy much bigger and deadlier than they realize. Veteran filmmaker Ralph Nelson (Lilies of the Field) directed this top-notch action film co-starring the great Rutger Hauer (Blade Runner) in his first English-speaking role.
