Synopsis: After surviving the bombing of his home, Malcolm X has retreated to a secluded hotel. Tonight will mark his first time formally sitting with Martin Luther King Jr, but he hoped that his mission for the night will be accomplished. Met with resistance from Martin, Malcolm must persuade Martin that his passive approach will never gain freedom. This ultimate test of will's examines the philosophies of two of the Civil Rights movement's most influential leaders and how their quests for equality, were even more alike than they could have ever imagined.
