Between 1966 and 1989 the relatively ignored South African border war raged across Namibia and Angola. This fascinating film explores the psyche of white males and former soldiers in postapartheid South Africa. It reveals the lasting scars that the horrors of armed conflict and battle left on young, innocent boys who risked their lives to fight the ‘rooi’ and ‘swart gevaar’. Today, many of these men are marginalised, unwanted and at the bottm of society, competing with the previously disadvantaged in the workplace.
Betrayed is sometimes shocking, often painful, but ultimately illuminating and uplifting as South Africans transcend the limits of personal tragedy and attempts to build a new nation.
