Race and politics add to the tension of a detective's search for a kidnapped child in Freedomland, starring Samuel L. Jackson and Julianne Moore. The film's screenplay was written by Richard Price; the story is based on his novel of the same name.

Freedomland is Price's latest story to cast modern cities as a battleground. His previous movies include 1995's Clockers, written for director Spike Lee.
