South Africa's most eminent pathologist, Dr Jonathan Gluckman, blames the police for many recent deaths in custody and says the culprits are not being brought to justice.  The Government has dismissed his accusations out of hand.  In this film, the Gluckman files are examined: they reveal a trail of fake post-mortems, secret inquests and police cover-ups – all part of the new South Africa.
