This documentary thriller tells the true, untold story behind Nelson Mandela’s release from prison featuring a protagonist straight out of a John le Carré novel. His name: Jean-Yves Ollivier, also known as ‘Monsieur Jacques’. To some, such as South Africa’s former President Thabo Mbeki, he was a mysterious French businessman or a French spy. For others, he was a trusted friend and a man of bold vision.
For the first time, heads of state, generals, diplomats, master spies and anti-apartheid fighters reveal how ‘Monsieur Jacques’ positioned himself to be the improbable key to Mandela’s prison cell.
