Catch a Fire
Tim Robbins Stars in "Catch a Fire".
Plot Summary: In 1980, in the Apartheid era South Africa, non-whites struggle with cruel and racist treatment due to existing separation laws. Patrick Chamusso (Derek Luke) is fortunate enough to have a home, a family, and a newly acquired job at the Secunda Oil Refinery and has no legitimate motivation for involvement in anti-Apartheid movements. During a day off from work, following a morning of coaching his soccer team, Patrick visits a son that he has secretly fathered with his ex-girlfriend. At the same time, the refinery where he works is struck by a group of terrorists, with an attempt to blow it up. Patrick is arrested as a suspect, interrogated, and tortured. To avoid exposing his double life and hurting his loved ones back at home, he keeps his alibi to himself. When his wife Precious (Bonnie Mbuli) is also arrested and beaten, Patrick gives in and lies by confessing to a crime he did not commit. Nic Vos (Tim Robbins), in contrast a much more reasonable white policeman than his fellow colleagues, sees through his confession and releases him. Patrick becomes a changed man, joins the outlawed African National Congress (ANC), and volunteers to destroy the Secunda Oil Refinery all by himself. When Vos learns of the plot, he begins a manhunt for Patrick, aka “Hotstuff.”
