It is 1964, and Cassius Clay (Eli Goree) has just clinched the Heavyweight Boxing Champion of the World title.

During their time together, they discuss their roles in the fight for civil rights and the advancement of American society toward racial equality. They emerge determined to change the world around them. Directed by Regina King.
