It was the Freedom Summer of 1964 and civil rights workers James Chaney, Andrew Goodman and Mickey Schwerner were driving through rural Mississippi. When a police cruiser flashed its lights behind them, they didn't know if they were law-abiding officers or members of the Ku Klux Klan. The decision of these courageous young men is told in this gripping story.
