Jessie Tidball starts as Anne Frank, a 13-year-old Jewish girl whose diary provided a gripping perspective of the Holocaust. Devon Tate and Landon Beard star as Emmett Till, the 14-year-old African-American boy whose brutal murder in the South galvanized the American civil rights movement.
The cast also includes Dave Landis, Kwakiutl Dreher and Jordan Deffenbaugh and is directed by Bobby Bonaventura.
