An interview with Said Zahari, a newspaper editor who was accused of pro-communist activities and detained without trial from 1963 to 1979. Amnesty International recognizes Zahari as a former "prisoner of conscience."
This film has been banned by the Singapore government. In a Singapore government media release highlighting the ban, it was stated that the documentary in question, "gives a distorted and misleading portrayal of Said Zahari's arrest and detention under the Internal Security Act in 1963".
