Based on the true story of William Wilberforce (Ioan Gruffudd), Amazing Grace follows his courageous quest to pass a law to end the British slave trade and reform society. Along the way, Wilberforce meets intense opposition from members of Parliament but his minister, John Newton (Albert Finney), a reformed slave ship captain who penned the beloved hymn, "Amazing Grace," urges him to put his faith into action and see the cause through.
