EN - An eye-opening report about the advocates of the apartheid regime in South Africa. They have settled in Orania. In total privacy, the Oranians are working on their own independent state. Our reporters forced their way to the core of this private community. This resulted in a comprehensive portrait of the extremists' daily life. The documentary focuses on the community's different aspects : extreme racism, the desire for an independent state, the new inhabitants, and the people who were forced to leave the village. So who is responsible for this provocative project ? The late minister Hendrik Verwoerd wrote history by giving Nelson Mandela a life sentence. His widow Betsy Verwoerd turns out to be one of the key characters in the Orania story.
