Based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel by Colson Whitehead and directed by Academy Award-winner Barry Jenkins, The Underground Railroad follows Cora Randall, who escapes a Georgia plantation in search of the rumored Underground Railroad, only to discover it's an actual railroad filled with engineers, conductors, and a secret network of tracks and tunnels underneath the South. During her journey, Cora is pursued by a bounty hunter who is hell-bent on returning her to the plantation she escaped.
