Winnie Madikizela Mandela is one of the most misunderstood and intriguingly powerful contemporary female political figures. For the first time, Winnie pieces together and properly considers her life and contribution to the struggle to bring down Apartheid from the inside. With intimate insight from Winnie herself and with testimony from the enemies who sought to suppress her radical capacities, this film is about the real Winnie.
