Quinn, a beat-up ex-sailor suffering from a terminal illness, conceives a plan to kidnap the President of an emergent African nation who has flown to South Africa, would you believe, to undergo medical tests. Quinn becomes fast friends with the President (Sabela), and finally redeems himself by stopping an assassin's bullet intended for the latter. Collinson screws up the pace of this singularly distasteful cut-price thriller in a vain attempt to disguise the script's efforts to ignore, trivialise, and misrepresent the realities of social and political life in South Africa.

My dad was an extra on this film as he worked at John Foster Police station in Johannesburg. I am URGENTLY looking for a copy of this film on DVD for him for Xmas as we never got to see the movie and my dad was still VERY young. Anyone that can help? I'm situated in Johannesburg, South Africa and would do anything to get a copy on DVD. thanks!! ;-)
