WATCH TRAILER

Synopsis: An African family awakens one morning in Sierra Leone in 1619.  This day they celebrate life and the unity of their son and his love interest.  At this celebration, a band of warriors from a neighboring tribe attacks and rips their son from his father’s protection and sells him into slavery.  The next morning the same family awakens in America in 2012 only to watch the hard streets rip their son again from them. We travel back and forth in time four times to examine the lives of four siblings as they struggle with the meaning of true love and true freedom.

This is a unique docu-drama of how the African American culture has been shaped and formed over the past 400 years.   We look at what defines culture and how the pain of slavery has created the current African American culture.
