Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
Two decades before the Civil War, a young woman named Kitty is one of the Maddox family's slaves - and patriarch Samuel's biological daughter. After Samuel's death, his wife Mary decides to grant Kitty and her children their freedom. Dragged back to Virginia by a gang of slave-catchers led by Samuel's own nephew, Kitty takes a defiant step: charging the younger Maddox with kidnapping and assault. The sensational trial that follows will decide the fate of Kitty and her children - and bond three extraordinary yet very different women together in their quest for justice.
