In 1865, while the American Civil War is nearing its end, President Abraham Lincoln proposes an amendment that prohibits slavery in the United States. However, this poses a great dilemma: if peace comes before the amendment is approved, the South will have the power to reject it and maintain slavery; If peace comes later, tens of thousands of people will continue to die in the front. In a race against time to get the necessary votes, Lincoln faces the biggest crisis of conscience of his life. (FILMAFFINITY)
