About the Film

In the decades after Bacon's Rebellion, an African man and an English woman - husband and wife - sing of their fate, their future as law by law, edict by edict, their family, their marriage, their love made illegal.


WORLD Channel's mission is to inform and inspire with real stories from around the world. In the stories we present, it's about more than just the issues, it's also about the human experience...the journeys we are all living.
