Restored in glorious 4K to celebrate its 50th anniversary, Sidney Poitier’s directorial debut tells the story of an ex-Union army sergeant, Buck, who helps provide safe passage for freed slaves heading to the Colorado frontier.

Tagging along with him are his wife (Ruby Dee) and a Bible-thumping con artist known as The Preacher (Belafonte). Attacked by racist bounty hunters, Buck and his followers must summon all their courage to reach their destination.
