Synopsis: Based on eye witness accounts, this documentary tells a story of the Namibian people who took up arms against Apartheid South Africa in 1966. Using powerful archival photographs and footage, the origins of nationalism in Namibia is retraced when peasants and contract workers organized themselves and rebelled against being slaves in their own country.
