Adapted by Christopher Sergel from the novel by Harper Lee
From a young age, Scout has enjoyed the privileges that come with being affluent and white in the racially segregated town of Maycomb, Alabama. When her father, a lawyer, takes on the task of defending a black man against a potential death sentence, Scout’s sheltered existence from racial issues is turned upside down. Scout quickly learns that growing up means doing what is right, even when it comes at great cost. Considered an American masterpiece, To Kill a Mockingbird illustrates the power of childhood innocence, morality, and love.
