The setting is a dusty Southern town during the Depression. A white woman accuses a black man of rape.

Atticus Finch, a lawyer in the Depression-era South, defends a black man against an undeserved rape charge, and his children against prejudice.
Rated PG for thematic elements, mild violence and language
  SITAG_Family | Jul 13, 2021 |
Scout Finch, 6, and her older brother Jem live in sleepy Maycomb, Alabama, spending much of their time with their friend Dill and spying on their reclusive and mysterious neighbor, Boo Radley. When Atticus, their widowed father and a respected lawyer, defends a black man named Tom Robinson against fabricated rape charges, the trial and tangent events expose the children to evils of racism and stereotyping.

A single father is the defense attorney for a black man in the south.

I would have liked it a lot more if it had focused on the trial, instead of all the business with the kids and Boo Radley. I never really feel like I'm seeing things from the kids' perspective, so they end up feeling like a distraction from the "adult" story.
