Synopsis: Two men separated by 100 years are united in their search for
freedom. In 1856 a slave, Samuel Woodward (Cuba Gooding, Jr.) 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 (William Sadler). 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.
