FREEDOM is on my to watch soon list. Slavery a subject with a dark cloud over many countries in many different eras is tragic. It is however a premise that lends itself as a backdrop to great story telling.
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.
