Show details

Synopsis


"Oh look, there's a chess set. How about a game, like old times?"


There are some enemies you'd wait a lifetime to see face-to-face.


Charismatic, corrupt and dangerous, Jacob Zuma was until recently President of South Africa.


But before Zuma came to power, Ronnie Kasrils masterminded the intelligence services.


Now at last they're alone together.


When you've been betrayed, it's never too late to settle old scores.


Funny, fascinating, and hugely enjoyable, The Ice Cream Boys is a gripping exploration of politics and power.
