The true story of Solomon Northup, an Afro-American man who lives his first 30 years as a free man in the state of New York, before being kidnapped and abducted to New Orleans as a slave in 1841. With unsparing brutality McQueen directs this downward spiral from a happy middle-class life to an existence where the most basic of human rights are trampled on. But over all that he never loses his sharp, analytical perspective on the complete and systematic perversion of moral values.
