When a group of enslaved persons on a Kentucky farm learn of a chance at freedom, they must agree on the best course of action to obtain it. The group deliberates and plans but nothing could prepare them for the unexpected events standing between them and the lives they seek.
The Underground boasts a screenplay that scored in the top 12% of all submissions to the 2020 Nashville Film Festival Screenwriting Competition. It will be made by director William M.
