This moving historical drama is inspired by the true story of a young slave's journey to freedom through the Underground Railroad

Whisperings of a railroad helping slaves across to the free states seem too good to be true to young Lida Anderson

But with the help of other slaves and her family, Lida risks everything to be free

Leaving behind the only life she knows, she embarks on a dangerous journey out of slavery to freedom

A Midnight Cry brings to life a vital part of our nation's history
