It’s 1964. Gerwyn, a young Welsh actor wins a part in the file Zulu. He meets and is drawn to Thembesile, a south African dancer. When they fall in love, their livesare ripped apart by the brutality of the apartheid regime – but they never forget and 40 years later at the london Olympics in 2012, fate is ready toplay its hand.
