♪ [slow, somber] I wanna ask you what part of the country you come from. I originate from Canada. Now guess where that is. (Man 1) Oh, I know where Canada is. I've been there myself. (Man 1) Well traveled for a slave. Solomon Northrup is an expert player on the violin. (Solomon) I was born a free man. I lived with my family in New York. (woman) Be good for your mother. (Solomon) Till the day I was deceived. Kidnapped, sold into slavery. Well boy. How you feel now? My name is Solomon Northrup. I'm a free man. and you have no right whatsoever to detain me. Your not a free man. You're nothin' but a forger runaway. ♪ Went down to the river Jordan ♪ A man servant, that don't obey his lord, shall be beaten with many stripes. That's scripture. The condition of your laborers is all wrong. They're my property. You say that with pride. I say it as fact. Man does how he pleases, with his property. I said come here! My family, and my home - now you tell me all that's lost? If you want to survive, do and say as little as possible. ♪ My soul arises ♪ (Solomon) But I don't want to survive. I want to live. I thought you knowed somethin'! I did as I was instructed. There's something wrong with the instruction. Master brought you here to work. Any more will earn you 100 lashes. I know what its like to be the object of master's lash. But in his own time, the good Lord will manage them all. I will survive! I will not fall into despair! I will keep myself hardy until freedom's opportunity. I was a free man. I'm not a slave. [heavy breathing]
