A universal story of loss, courage and triumph, this recounts the extraordinary journey of Aminata Diallo, an indomitable African woman who survives in a world in which everything seems to be against her. Kidnapped by slave traders in West Africa then sold into slavery in South Carolina, Aminata navigates her way through the American Revolution in New York, the isolated refuge of Nova Scotia, and the treacherous jungles of Sierra Leone, before finally securing her freedom in England.

A must-watch movie. Hard at times for the racism and violence, but it gives you a better understanding of what things were like during that time because it felt so realistic. Based on true events. I thought all of the actors did a wonderful job, including Aunjanue Ellis who filled in the role of Aminata Diallo (the main female character).
