Movie Info

The untold story behind History, a well-kept secret behind the world-wide icon : Nelson Mandela's release was a Plot for Peace. PLOT FOR PEACE is a character-driven historical thriller documentary feature about the demise of apartheid. It tells the story of Jean-Yves Ollivier, alias "Monsieur Jacques", whose behind-the-scenes bargaining was instrumental in bringing about regional peace and the end of racial discrimination in South Africa. For the first time, heads of state, generals, diplomats, master spies and anti-apartheid fighters reveal how Africa's front line states helped end apartheid. The improbable key to Mandela's prison cell was a mysterious French businessman, dubbed "Monsieur Jacques" in classified correspondence. His trade secret was trust. (C) Trinity
