Based on Harper Lee’s Pulitzer Prize winning novel, Atticus Finch (Mike Sobocinski), a lawyer from the Depression-era South tries to prove the innocence of a black man unjustly accused of rape; and protect his children from the evils of prejudice. To Kill A Mockingbird is a coming-of-age story of Scout Finch (Carleigh Lundquist) and her brother, Jem (Jerrad Epkey) in 1930's Alabama. Through their neighborhood meanderings and the example of their lawyer father, Atticus, they grow to understand that the world isn't always fair and that prejudice is a very real aspect of their world no matter how subtle it seems.
