Written and directed by Krystin Ver Linden, the film follows Keke Palmer as Alice, a young woman yearning for freedom as an enslaved person in rural Georgia, who makes a shocking discovery when she flees the plantation and its disturbed owner; take a look here…
Alice (Keke Palmer) yearns for freedom as an enslaved person on a rural Georgia plantation. After a violent clash with its brutal and disturbed owner, Paul (Jonny Lee Miller), she flees through the neighboring woods and stumbles onto the unfamiliar sight of a highway, soon discovering the year is actually 1973. Rescued on the roadside by a disillusioned political activist named Frank (Common), Alice quickly comprehends the lies that have kept her in bondage and the promise of Black liberation. Inspired by true events, Alice is a modern empowerment story tracing Alice’s journey through the post-Civil Rights Era American South.

Alice arrives in cinemas on March 18th.
