Indiana, 1817. The entire nation, only 40 years old and a few years removed from a second war of independence, is raw. Men, women, and children alike must battle nature and disease to survive in remote log cabins. This is young Abraham Lincoln's world. Spanning three years of the future president's childhood, The Better Angels explores his family, the hardships that shaped him, the tragedy that marked him forever, and the two women who guided him to immortality. —Amplify Releasingilliteracystorytellingrural settingfamily relationshipstragic event241 morePlot summaryAdd synopsisGenresBiographyDramaHistoryMotion Picture Rating (MPAA)Rated PG for thematic elements and brief smokingParents guideAdd content advisory
