Inspired by real-life events, the film’s compelling story has played its way into the hearts of audiences worldwide, as has the Silverton Siege cast, including several successful actors and actresses.
Set in 1980 in the Silverton suburb of Pretoria, South Africa, the film follows the soldiers of MK, a liberation army founded by legendary South African leader Nelson Mandela.
