Two men, separated by a century, are joined in their quest for liberty. Samuel Woodward and his family flee the Monroe Plantation in Richmond, Virginia, in 1856. On their trip north to Canada, the family is guided by the Underground Railroad, a covert network of regular people. Plimpton, the famed slave hunter, is persistent in his pursuit of them. Samuel is forced to choose between retribution and freedom as he is pursued like a hound and plagued by the unimaginable misery he and his forefathers have undergone.
In 1748, a slave trader captain named John Newton sets ship from Africa with a cargo of slaves heading for America. Samuel’s great grandpa is on board, and his survival is linked to Captain Newton’s fate. Newton’s life is irrevocably changed as a result of the expedition, and he leaves a legacy that will inspire Samuel and millions of others for years to come.
