At the height of the cold war a struggle broke out between Governments from all over the world as to which position to take about the system of apartheid in South Africa. Leading the fight was Olof Palmes’ Swedish Government, which covertly funneled over US$ 1 billion (corresponding to the present day rate) to the resistance movement. This money was given without the knowledge of either the Parliament or the Swedish populace. At the center of the net in South Africa was a Swedish diplomat called Birgitta Karlström Dorph. This documentary premiered on SVT2 2015.
