In South Africa a disastrous disinformation campaign is being waged against the integrity of journalists. But then the journalists receive a smoking gun - a huge data leak that exposes the entire modus operandi behind the seizure of the South African state by private individuals with the help of corrupt politicians. When a judicial commission of inquiry is finally set up, the long-time president of the country, Zuma, is also summoned as a witness. His defense: It's all lies and fake news.
