This movie was very touching from start to finish. It is not as powerful as ROOTS of course but then again what movie is? Its a generational story of a woman named Flora who survives the remnants of slavery to the 21 century. She was consider stubborn as a mule. I think that stubbornness is what made her the heartbeat of the family. She had the respect of her family and community. I know that slavery is a heavy stain on American History but it is American History. To understand it you have to see both sides of the story. You don't have to be African American to enjoy this movie. It is an American story of Love,Hatred,Sacrice and Hope. It is a definite must see.
