    Overall
    "Littered with inaccuracies & mispronunciations"

    Although this is basically a good plot, it does behove an author who is writing a fictional tale based on recent historical events to respect basic facts & truths. Mr Wallace fails on many counts to do this.......to give but one example, there are numerous references made to the British Embassy & the British Ambassador in Zimbabwe in the early 1980's when in fact there existed only a British High Commission (& a High Commissioner) in Harare at that time which was well before Zimbabwe was ejected from the Commonwealth.
    Ben Onukwe's portrayal of a white Zimbabwean accent is diabolically inaccurate and his attempt to make all Rhodesian / white Zimbabwean youths sound like RLI Troopies or Vrystaat rugby fans is offensive & insulting to anybody who was fortunate enough to live & receive a private education there in & around that era. Similarly, his frequent mispronunciation of place names and colloquial expressions shows that little research was done before this production was embarked upon.
    All in all, a poor effort....I had expected & hoped for better!
