His people needed a leader. He gave them a champion.


Newly elected President Nelson Mandela knows his nation remains racially and economically divided in the wake of apartheid. Believing he can bring his people together through the universal language of sport, Mandela rallies South Africa's rugby team as they make their historic run to the 1995 Rugby World Cup Championship match.

**It's much more than JUST rugby**
Though the movie doesn't give much insights into the life of the living legend(still breathing among us when I saw this movie) known as **NELSON MANDELA**, it sure tells us a lot about what the man is made of.That **we are the master of our fate, we are the captain of our soul**.
Forgiveness is a mighty powerful weapon that can make or break nations.How a sport can unite a divided nation into ONE, it is a well known fact but to actually be able to do that in a country like SOUTH Africa,at a time when it was ready to rise from the ashes or to fall into its own crevices lying beneath the surface and ready to torn apart the whole nation again into TWO,is what gives me INSPIRATION to rise whenever i'll fall...
The entire cast is brilliant without going overboard in situations that could've been intense.A truly inspiring movie that can be imprinted in your heart for the rest of your lives if you're **ready to FORGIVE people and make this world a better place to live in!**
