WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

This remarkable woman put everything on the line in her quest for social justice. Did she make a difference? One of the most celebrated Shakespearean actresses of the 19th century, Fanny Kemble was also a passionate campaigner for the abolition of slavery. When, on a tour of the United States, she marries the heir of a wealthy slave-owning family, she finds herself plunged into her own private civil war.
