In 1797, William Wilberforce, campaigns as the great crusader for the British abolition of slavery. He meets the charming Barbara Spooner, in whom he finds a soulmate, and then manoeuvres his way through the Parliament of William Pitt and rejuvenates the fight with new ideas that would lead to a great victory for social injustice.
