Amid global condemnation of South Africa's apartheid regime in 1974, the British and Irish Lions rugby team defied international isolation by touring the country to face the Springboks. Despite government disapproval, the series was marked by intense media scrutiny and remarkable rugby, earning the Lions the moniker "The Invincibles." This film showcases their journey amidst Nelson Mandela's anti-apartheid movement, offering a poignant reflection on South Africa's transformation since then.
