A tale of two men, separated by time and circumstance, but united in their search for freedom and redemption.

In 1856, a man born into slavery, Samuel Woodward (Academy Award Winner® Cuba Gooding, Jr. – Jerry Maguire) and his family escape their abject existence on a Virginian plantation and begin a dangerous trek to Canada along the Underground Railroad. Woodward is relentlessly pursued by a slave hunter, Plimpton who will stop at nothing to capture the family, dead or alive.

Over 100 years earlier, in 1748, respected Captain John Newton sets sail across the sea to the New World with a ship full of slaves. Questioning the virtues of his assignment, Newton will face sickness, sorrow and a fierce storm that will endanger the entire ship. Challenged by personal pressures of faith and conscience, each man is destined to be tested severely in their respective journeys, united by a remarkable bond that spans a century and will prove to be the ultimate gift of grace.

Staff Review:

I just loved FREEDOM, the prequel to AMAZING GRACE. Inspired by real people & events, it follows the English slave ship captain whose change of heart led him to compose “Amazing Grace,” Mr John Newton. Starring Cuba Gooding Jr. who plays a slave called Samuel, I just couldn't look away as their two stories set 100 years apart unfolded. It’s gut-wrenching watching Mr Newton battle his conscious, likewise you just want to step in and help Samuel yourself as he and family attempt to flee slavery by way of the secret Underground Railroad. It really stirred my faith, it’s sense of justice, courage, hope and redemption reminded me that Christian charity can never go too far and that doing the right thing is always best.

If you love Christian movies, beautiful historical dramas and singing; you MUST see FREEDOM!
