Dragged from bed in dark of night, Mildred and Richard Loving began a tumultuous journey from rat-invested jails to the US Supreme Court. A black woman married to a white man in 1958 Virginia, they committed the crime of miscegenation and were exiled for 25 years. Fighting for the right to marry, they changed history. Through rare verité footage and exclusive interviews, our film offers a unique perspective on their heroism and the right to pursue happiness regardless of color, creed or sexuality.
