I can't get it out

of my head, Vinnie.

It is... it's so articulate.

He quotes Plato's Republic


John Milton.

It's just...

it's quite engaging.

Don't go to Pollsmoor,

that's my advice.

He's, um, only out

to harm you, you know,

he'll try and destroy you.

Don't exaggerate.



he's a psychopath

and a convicted killer.

I know who he is.

Well, then?

No one...

is beyond redemption, Vinnie.


Prisoner Blomfeld, go to C-Block.

You have a visitor.

Oh. All right.

Nice one.

Bloody Hell.

He fell over.

Thank you, Sergeant.

The fucking prison bastard

told me you wouldn't come.

"No way," he said.

But I knew you would come.

I knew you wouldn't be able

to resist it.


Well, you are sure

that I would come,

so I'm sure

that you are prepared.

Don't play with me, bru.

Don't delude yourself.

Delude myself?

Thinking you can get inside here.

Well, then

let's stop the games

before they go any further.

This is no fucking game, kaffir.

Hey. Hmm.


"Father"...will do.

You got to be kidding yourself

that what's gonna

happen here is random.

I've read all about you.

Studied it.

I've got plenty of time to do

what I need to do.

Mr. Blomfeld,

what is it that you want?

Is it amnesty?

And if it is?

Well, now,

I'm not saying that I can even

consider your application.

But if you want to be free,

from then part of the process

in seeking amnesty...

"Involves making a full

and frank confession,

leaving nothing out."

I know, I can bloody read.

You will have

to seek forgiveness.

You must ask for it.


Forgiveness for what?

For offing some black

bastard thieving scum

trying to steal my country?

It's our country.

F*ck that! Your country.

What have your people

ever done to build it?
