Reel Sum Up... 

Nigeria, the 1920s.
The grandson of Bishop Samuel Ajayi Crowther,  Herbert Macaulay,  returns from England and is immediately appalled by the segregation he witnesses. Battling with the colonial government to gain equality for Nigerians, the future nationalist soon earns their wrath and faces more opposition on a personal level when he falls in love with Caroline Pratt, whose father happens to be a Superintendent of police in Her Majesty's service. Herbert must now fight for both love and the freedom of his country.
