On 28 August 1955, while visiting his cousins in Mississippi, 14-year-old African American Emmett Louis Till (Jalyn Hall) was abducted, tortured and lynched for flirting with a white woman in a grocery store. His mutilated dead body was discovered in a river three days later. For his mother, Mamie Till Mobley (Danielle Deadwyler), her poignant journey of grief ignites a powerful, historic and relentless crusade for accountability.

A gripping and restrained – but no less powerful – study of a mother’s ability to change the world, with star Deadwyler delivering a performance for the ages.
