When a museum celebrating the Ku Klux Klan opens in a small South Carolina town, the idealistic
Reverend Kennedy resolves to do everything in his power to prevent long-simmering racial tensions
from boiling over. But the members of Kennedy’s congregation are shocked to discover that his plan
includes sheltering Mike Burden, a Klansman whose relationships with both a
single-mother and a high-school friend force him to re-examine his long-held
beliefs. After Kennedy helps Mike leave behind his violent past, the Baptist
preacher finds himself on a collision course with manipulative KKK leader
Tom Griffin. In the face of grave threats to himself and his family, the resolute
Kennedy bravely pursues a path toward peace, setting aside his own misgivings
in the hopes of healing his wounded community.
IMTA alum Garrett Hedlund stars as Burden, alongside Oscar winner Forest
Whitaker, Tom Wilkinson, Andrea Riseborough, Tess Harper, Crystal Fox, and
Usher. The film, which is based on a true story, initially premiered at the Sundance
Film Festival in 2018 where it won the Audience Award.
