Richard and Mildred Loving were sentenced to a year in prison for marrying each other at a time when interracial marriage was prohibited by law in their home state of Virginia. Their determination to be together led them to bring this case all the way to the Supreme Court where, in a landmark decision, the court invalidated laws prohibiting interracial marriage. The decision was followed by an increase in interracial marriages in the U.S., and is remembered annually on Loving Day, June 12. This documentary novel vividly brings to life this inspiring story.
