Set in Jackson, Mississippi, during the 1960s, The Help chronicles the relationship between three extraordinary women – a white aspiring writer and two African-American housemaids – who build an unlikely friendship around a secret writing project. A remarkable sisterhood emerges from their improbable alliance, instilling all of them with the courage to transcend the lines that define them – even if it means bringing everyone in town face to face with the changing times.
