Taken in by a special family, he learns the meaning of responsibility and the true cost of freedom.
Escape and death...
The price of freedom...
Nicknamed Runaway for his numerous escapes, a young slave dreams of freedom. Again and again he runs, only to be enslaved once more. Unable to stand more punishment, he commits the ultimate sin – he kills a white overseer. Now, it's run or hang.
Amid death and sacrifice, Runaway heads North. He finds a station of the Underground Railroad which leads him to meet the Coopers, a special family, who take him in and give him his first true home. But danger follows and moving slaves to freedom becomes more difficult.
Join Runaway on his journey of learning to fulfill responsibility and that freedom never comes without a price.
