In the 1800s American South, Harriet Jacobs lives as a slave to a cruel and unforgiving master. Enslaved and tormented, she spends her days hiding from his relentless attempts to coerce her into a sexual union. Fueled by anger and lust, he uses any means necessary to get what he wants, including separating her from her children and threatening her with increased hardships.
As she deals with the evils surrounding her, she never stops seeking freedom, for her and her children. Through a series of miraculous events, Jacobs outwits her tormentor, escapes to freedom and eventually reunites with her children. Once free, she spends her days in the cause of abolition and reform, helping newly freed slaves with the education and aftercare they desperately need to survive.
In 2012, Timothy Ballard encounters a grieving father in the country of Haiti, whose story would change his life forever. The father’s three-year-old son, along with thousands of other children orphaned in 2010 following a devastating earthquake, had been kidnapped and sold into slavery. Inspired by Harriet Jacobs, Tim pledges to track down the missing child at all costs. Unable to fulfill the mission under his current circumstances, he leaves his job at the Department of Homeland Security to establish Operation Underground Railroad, a modern-day abolitionist network devoted to ending the plight of human trafficking. True to his word, Tim uses his newfound network to infiltrate black market trafficking, liberate its victims, and provide a comprehensive aftercare process involving justice and rehabilitation for survivors.
