The film is based on the extraordinary true story of how Harriet Tubman escaped slavery and became a hero of the underground railroad. Her transformation into an iconic freedom fighter as she returned to the south many times over plays out in this story of tenacity and courage. Tubman would free hundreds of slaves during the course of her journey, and change the course of history.
Starring Cynthia Erivo, Leslie Odom, Jr. and Janelle Monae, this film has been many years in the making. Director and writer Kasi Lemmons is relatively new to the big screen, spending years in television. This is a film about what is means to be free and the woman who refused anything less. Be free or die, and remember her name.
