SPEAKING FREELY is a biopic of the First Amendment told through the landmark cases of its most celebrated attorney, Floyd Abrams. From nascent law 50 years ago to an iconic part of the American identity, the journey of the First Amendment offers a unique lens through which to view our recent history and our bitterly divided nation - one that is asking itself anew: what price are we willing to pay for free speech?
