An intense, exhilarating suspenseful movie that is, on the surface, an investigation into a murder, but underneath that, it is an investigation into the heart-wrenching and familiar question of how a black man lives in a white society. A SOLDIER'S STORY was scripted by Charles Fuller from his Pulitzer Prize-winning Broadway play and stars some of the original Broadway cast.
