Sunday, 9 November 1952 should be remembered in South Africa as a day of infamy but few know of a brutal massacre when police opened fire at an ANC Youth League event in Duncan Village in East London. 

In the cover-up that followed, the facts were almost lost to history. The focus shifted to the killing of Irish nun, Sister Aidan Quinlan, a doctor who ran a clinic in Duncan Village. 

Bloody Sunday follows the trail of the remarkable Sister Aidan to piece together one of the most tragic days – and devastating massacres -- of the apartheid era.
