They say I'm meddling in the foreign affairs of the United States Government. Now, that's too bad, 'cause I'm going to have to continue to meddle...
 
Paul Robeson is a world famous actor, singer and civil rights campaigner. When over the years he gets progressively too radical and outspoken for the establishment's liking, he is branded a traitor to his country, harassed, and denied opportunities to perform or travel.
Just as physical, emotional and mental stress threaten to push him over the fine line between genius and madness, he is summoned to appear before the House Un-American Activities Committee, to give the most difficult and important performance of his career.

"First-rate... an admirable introduction to a great pioneering performer."
(The Guardian)
