Plot Summary
Interracial couple Richard and Mildred Loving fell in love and were married in 1958.

Yet it was the state of Virginia, where they were making their home and starting a family, that first jailed and then banished them. Richard and Mildred relocated with their children to the inner city of Washington, D.C., but the family ultimately tries to find a way back to Virginia.

  • His pictures cover familiar territory. Yet Nichols is blessed with a talent for telling stories from fresh, surprising perspectives. show more
