It is the spring of 1960, and a fight with his brother Edward compels a young Joseph to leave his mother’s Louisiana home and join his friends for a trip to Atlanta for The Student Non-Violent Coordinating Committee’s second conference. Excited to live life on their own, Jo and his friends have left school and the lives they were living for a chance to become part of “The Movement”.

However, the teens are naive. With no money, and essentially no plan the seven friends, both black and white, set out for the road when they are stopped by a racist cop who makes them exit the car and  already their journey is on to a rocky start. From the mob at the New Orleans Bus Terminal, to the Alabama gas station just shy of Montgomery, Jo quickly learns that the road to freedom is not as smooth as he had hoped.
