Nothing But The Truth is a gripping investigation into the complex dynamic between those blacks who remained in South Africa and risked their lives to lead the struggle against apartheid and those who returned victoriously after living in exile. In New Brighton, South Africa, 63-year-old librarian Sipho Makhaya prepares for the return of the ashes of his brother Themba, recently deceased while in exile in London after gaining a reputation as a hero of the anti-apartheid movement.

Internationally recognized, multiple award-winning actor, writer and director John Kani is the lead actor in this film version of the internationally acclaimed award-winning play Nothing But The Truth which he also authored.
