After South Africa elected Nelson Mandela president, the racially divided country could've easily erupted into civil war. Nelson Mandela rejects revenge, forgives oppressors who jailed him 27 years for his fight against apartheid and finds hope of national unity in an unlikely place: the rugby field. Knowing that his country was set to host the Rugby World Cup in 1995, Mandela believed the national team could provide an example of reconciliation in action. Instead of changing their name or colors, Mandela encouraged them to do the impossible, win for the sake of their homeland.
