Review: While Eliza Scott fights for freedom from her overly-protective parents, they are fighting for freedom from their slave owners. Before the courts hear their case, the famous Dred Scott case, they are hired out by their owner and must report back to jail every night. Eliza's independent streak lands her in a heap of trouble against the backdrop of a cholera epidemic and the worst fire in St. Louis' history.
