Masterpiece: Endgame

As South Africa teeters on the brink of a civil war, a British businessman working there, Michael Young, has the audacious hope of bringing the two sides of the apartheid conflict together. But after when his dream of secret talks is realized on an estate in England, it quickly becomes clear that common ground will be harder to find than explosive tensions boil just below the surface. Against a backdrop of danger, terrorism and escalating unrest, a high-stakes chess match plays out, ultimately proving that peace can be possible.
