A film by acclaimed playwright and screen writer Murray Watts and co-produced by BAFTA-winning director Norman Stone, passionately and movingly performed by one actor, Andrew Harrison. Originally performed on stage to universal praise before MP's in Westminster and audiences across the UK

This is the story of a life committed to humanity. Wilberforce's political career becomes a campaign, his conscience a force for change.

The Walk begins with a simple journey by Parliament's rising star to a meeting that changes the course of his life. It continues as a marathon walk to overcome the self-interest of Parliament and country. And becomes an unstoppable movement that released millions from their chains.
