A harrowing true story...

To be a free man and a man with a trade, was a lot to be proud of for a black man in 19th century America. Solomon Northup was such a man.

Then, one fateful day, his good life and all his dreams came to a crashing halt. Solomon Northup was kidnapped and carried off into slavery to serve on a plantation in the South. For twelve long years he experienced the cruelty and subjugation that was slavery.

Under any circumstances, it's a harrowing story, one that is compelling and wonderfully realized in this motion picture. Under most circumstances, this would be a story worth telling. Under these circumstances, it is a story that needs to be told.

For the story of Solomon Northup is a true story.
