In 1905, South Africa's British overlords set out to force the powerful Zulu nation to work on white farms. For Chief Bhambatha, the introduction of a poll tax to compel Zulus to do this, was the last straw. The battle which followed showed the remarkable strength of the Zulu nation. A powerful mix of dramatic reconstruction and historic archive, this documentary is as topical as it is historical.
