Eric Abraham is a South African born, Oscar-winning film producer.
But when he was 22, working as a journalist in Cape Town, he was served with a five year house arrest and banning order by the Apartheid government, which turned his life upside down.
Locked into his one-bedroom apartment, he was bombarded by telephone death threats.
He was refused an exit permit, but managed to escape, only to find out later that he had been deceived, both by the man who got him out of the country and by his own father.
In Betrayal, Eric Abraham returns to Cape Town to try to put together the pieces of his story and to confront those who betrayed him.
