It is the late 1980s. Serious allegations surface against three prominent
National Party cabinet ministers, one of them the second-most powerful man
in the land. They are, it is said, regularly abusing young boys on an island
just off the coast of Port Elizabeth.
From opposite ends of South Africa, a brave cop and a driven journalist
investigate. Mark Minnie and Chris Steyn independently uncover evidence of
a dark secret. But the case only surfaces briefly before it disappears
Thirty years later, the two finally connect the dots to expose this shocking
story of criminality, cover-ups and official complicity in the rape and
possible murder of children, most of them vulnerable and black.
