In Underground, bravery, ingenuity and power take centre stage as plantation slaves’ band together in the fight of their lives – for their families, their future and most importantly ... their freedom. In 1857, a courageous man named Noah organizes a small team of fellow slaves on the Macon plantation and puts together a plan to escape and head 600 dangerous miles North, to freedom. The odds of success are slim and for those who make it off the plantation, the risks and uncertainties of life on the run multiply. The sacrifices are immense as they leave family behind to pay for their bold escape. They’re aided along the way by an abolitionist couple in Ohio, new to running a station on the Underground and unprepared for the havoc it will wreak on their personal lives, all the while being pursued by a ruthless mercenary catcher hell-bent on bringing them back, dead or alive.
