About Alabama Story
It’s 1959 and the Civil Rights movement is starting to grip America. In Montgomery, Alabama, a fight over a controversial children’s book—one in which a black rabbit marries a white rabbit—pits one courageous woman against a segregationist state senator. Meanwhile, childhood friends reunite, only to be caught up in the political and racial tensions of the time.
