12 Years a Slave
12 Years a Slave is based on the incredible true story of Solomon Nothurp, a free man of color from New York who is abducted and sold as a slave in the 1850s Louisiana. We follow his desperate struggle to reunite with his family and the life he used to live.
As a slave, Solomon is subjected to unbelievable cruelty, but also encounters unexpected kindness. He must not only struggle to stay alive but to retain his dignity. In his twelfth year as a slave, he meets a Canadian abolitionist who will change his life forever.
