This is the story of how Canada and the Underground Railroad became the focal point of the anti-slavery movement in the tumultuous decade leading up to the American Civil War. The Underground Railroad, part metaphor, part fact, enabled thousands of black refugees to flee the oppression of the only nation in the western world that still condoned the practice of slavery. Using manuscripts and letters to create dramatic reconstructions, this film tells the stories of those who fled and dramatcally portrays the unique role Canada played in helping to end slavery.
