Summary:
An adaptation of Harriet Beecher Stowe's 1852 anti-slavery novel, and the first to adhere to Stowe's clear abolitionist vision -- showing the anguish, strength, and pride of Tom. The story follows the lives of two slaves, Eliza and Tom, after they have been sold to pay off a plantation owner's debt. While Eliza runs away with her young son, Tom does not and is subsequently sold to two very different masters, the first a benevolent individual, and the second a cruel owner who tries to break Tom's spirit.
