Summary:
Television movie based on the 1963 bombing of the 16th Street Baptist Church in Birmingham, Alabama, that killed four black girls. The movie centers on the real-life struggle of Tom Cherry, son of one of the men implicated in the crime. Although circumstantial evidence pointed to Bobby Frank Cherry and Thomas E. Blanton Jr., the men were not indicted by a grand jury until 37 years after the bombing when Tom Cherry, once a Klansman himself, agreed to testify against his father and his father's cohorts.
