Solomon Northup's father, Mintus, was born into slavery and only freed after his master's death. Solomon, however, was born a free man in New York and lived the American dream with a home and a loving family, until he was suddenly drugged, kidnapped, and sold into slavery in the Deep South. This story is the true account of his 12 years as a slave. His extraordinary journey proves his resiliency despite the most grueling and disturbing of circumstances.
