The film tells a story of life of Harriet Tubman, an iconic abolitionist and political activist.
Harriet, originally named as Araminta Ross, was born in slavery, against which she fought from an early age. Endowed with courage, intelligence and strength of character, she helped liberate hundreds of enslaved people. Also known as the Moses of Her People, Tubman escaped from slavery and assisted other others in gaining freedom. She is regarded the first African American woman to serve in the military.
This is a tale of a woman who established herself as one of the fearless and brave female freedom fighters in history.
