Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi was invited to South Africa in 1893 to settle a case for a wealthy Indian settled there.

During those years, his ideas took shape and his personal and political philosophy evolved. Gandhi’s creed of nonviolence and satyagraha originated in that country. The impact of South Africa was incalculable and this film deals with these 21 years. His constant search for truth causes hardships for the whole family.
