Children of the Struggle
When a prominent Los Angeles attorney receives a letter from a dying man in Alabama, he embarks on a journey to discover the truth about this mysterious gentleman's connection to the mother the attorney never knew - a woman who risked everything to stand up for the rights of a friend. The film is a powerful story of friendship, love, family and sacrifice set against the turbulent times of 1964's Freedom Summer. First-time director John Benitz delivers a beautifully crafted and highly provocative tale that packs a punch.
