There are two sides to every story; for Alex Haley, one side was the Roots saga, tracing seven generations of his mother's side of the family beginning with Kunta Kinte. The other side of Haley's family is depicted in Alex Haley's Queen, the remarkable story of his paternal grandmother (Halle Berry). Daughter of a black slave and a white plantation owner, Queen searches for a home in the two cultures of her heritage both before and after the turbulent years of the Civil War. Although she is, at times, shunned by both cultures, rejection and hate are no match for her unconquerable will. Danny Glover, Jasmine Guy, Tim Daly, Ann-Margret and Martin Sheen costar.
