This historical epic is set in the 18th century, at a time when the African slave trade is thriving in the British Empire. This all changes when William Wilberforce (Ioan Gruffudd) is elected to the House of Commons at the age of 21 and takes on the issue of slavery. William is a young idealist who was inspired by John Newton (Albert Finney), the former slave ship captain who wrote the hymn "Amazing Grace", and puts his health and career on the line as he struggles for more than 15 years to pass a law to end slavery.
