Storyline

Two men separated by 100 years are united in their search for freedom. In 1856 a slave, Samuel Woodward and his family, escape from the Monroe Plantation near Richmond, Virginia. A secret network of ordinary people known as the Underground Railroad guide the family on their journey north to Canada. They are relentlessly pursued by the notorious slave hunter Plimpton. Hunted like a dog and haunted by the unthinkable suffering he and his forbears have endured, Samuel is forced to decide between revenge or freedom. 100 years earlier in 1748, John Newton the Captain of a slave trader sails from Africa with a cargo of slaves, bound for America. On board is Samuel's great grandfather whose survival is tied to the fate of Captain Newton. The voyage changes Newton's life forever and he creates a legacy that will inspire Samuel and the lives of millions for generations to come. Written by Distributor

A Faith Based film of Calibre
26 August 2014 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Based on actual events, this period drama ticks all the boxes for acting, cinematography, set design, script and direction. It is a well- produced, emotive tale that looks like it came straight from Hollywood and proves once and for all, that faith based films don't have to be sub-standard.

While the film leans heavily on the themes of faith and the freedom that comes from believing in God, it is not contrived. It's because the era and the real life characters, on which the film was based, truly behaved as such. Ultimately the lessons of the film would be that men may shackle your limbs but they cannot shackle your soul. Sin may bind your heart but God can set it free.

While it is rated M for Australian viewers, my 13 year old loved it and it opened her eyes about the terrible history of slavery. In addition, the audience is reminded that there are more people trafficked and bound in slavery today, than at any other time in the history of mankind.
