'The Bang Bang Club' is the real-life story of a group of four young combat photographers -- Greg Marinovich, Joao Silva, Kevin Carter and Ken Oosterbroek -- bonded by friendship and a dedication to telling the truth.

Using their camera lenses, they risked their lives to tell the world of the brutality and violence associated with the first free elections in post-Apartheid South Africa in the early '90s.

This intense political period brought out their best work -- two won Pulitzers -- but cost a heavy price.
