Plot summary

What is Son of the South movie plot?

Here is a short review of "Son of the South" movie plot summary.

Bob Zellner (Lucas Till) is the son of a Methodist minister, a senior attending all-white Huntingdon College in Montgomery, Alabama in 1961. Seeking information with which to write research papers on race relations, Zellner and four fellow students attend a event held in a Black church to mark the fifth anniversary of the 1955-56 Montgomery Bus Boycott. The event is conducted by Ralph Abernathy (Cedric the Entertainer) and Rosa Parks (Sharonne Lanier). When police arrive to arrest them, the white students evade arrest by fleeing through a back door. Dubbed the 'Huntingdon Five' in a newspaper, a cross is burned on the yard outside Zellner's room. Zellner's klansman grandfather warns him not to involve himself in the civil rights movement.
Witnessing a mob attack on the Freedom Riders, Zellner helps Jessica Mitford (Sienna Guillory) get to safety.
At first a passive supporter of the movement, Zellner goes on to become SNCC's first white field secretary.
