In 1740 Hudson Valley, New York, Sue, an enslaved woman on the Philipsburg plantation attempts to help two runaway slaves under the nose of a seething overseer, all while knowing her daughter is to be sold off the next day.

Filmed on the location at the preserved Manor house and farm, Runaway is a story of slavery in the north before the American Revolution with characters based on the real people of the Philipsburg Upper Mill. While largely fictional, it is a genuine illustration of the tragedies the enslaved faced during this period.
