Summary

Title from container.

Based on the book by Lawrence Hill.

Originally broadcast as a six-part miniseries on CBC in Canada and BET in the US in 2015.

Bonus features: Deleted scenes ; interviews with cast & author Lawrence Hill ; History of the Black Loyalist Society featurette.

A universal story of loss, courage and triumph, this miniseries 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 land of Sierra Leone, before sailing to London to help abolish the slave trade at the dawn of the 19th century.
