It’s 1865, the Civil War is over, and just as peace seems finally to be achieved, chaos threatens once again when President Lincoln is assassinated. This brilliant political drama tells the real-life story of Mary Surratt, the only female conspirator and the first woman ever to be executed by the US government. Inspired by the post-9/11 trials of Islamic terrorists, Redford paints an intimate portrait of the final days of a falsely accused terrorist who died without a fair trial.
