Adapted from the Pulitzer Prize winning novel, To Kill a Mockingbird opens in a sleepy Alabama town in the midst of the Great Depression, where Scout and her brother, Jem, live with their widowed father, Atticus Finch. The facade of the seemingly peaceful town begins to crack when a young black man is accused of a terrible crime. Timeless and lingering, this hard-hitting work explores prejudice, compassion and the courage to do what is right.
