Academy Award winner Forest Whitaker (The Last King of Scotland, The Butler, Black Panther) and Garrett Hedlund (Mudbound) star in a powerful and timely true story of faith and love overcoming hate. Set in a small South Carolina town scarred from deep-rooted racism in the mid-‘90s, an unlikely friendship forms when an African American Reverend (Whitaker) shelters Mike Burden (Hedlund), a KKK member, along with his girlfriend Judy, a single mother played by Andrea Riseborough. Through his faith and love, Reverend Kennedy helps Mike leave his violent past in the Klan ultimately helping to heal the community. From Oscar-nominated producer Robbie Brenner (Dallas Buyers Club) and writer/director Andrew Heckler, Burden features incredible performances by Whitaker, Hedlund, Riseborough, Tom Wilkinson, Tess Harper, Crystal Fox and Usher Raymond.
