Two men separated by time are united in their search for freedom in this gripping tale of slavery, endurance, despair, and redemption. In 1856, Samuel Woodward (Academy Award Winner® Cuba Gooding, Jr. - Selma, Lee Daniels' The Butler, Red Tails) and his family escape their cruel life on a Virginian plantation and begin a dangerous trek to Canada on the Underground Railroad. Over 100 years earlier, in 1748, Captain John Newton (Bernhard Forcher - "Grimm", "Supernatural", Boys of Abu Ghraib) is about to set off across the sea with a ship full of slaves. Both men are having struggles of faith and conscience, and both will be tested severely in their journeys. Woodward is relentlessly pursued by a slave hunter, Plimpton, and his two thugs. They will stop at nothing to capture the family, dead or alive. Newton will face sickness, sorrow, and a fierce storm that will endanger the entire ship. In the end, both men will be united by a bond that spans a century and will prove to be the ultimate gift of grace.
