Cet événement se déroule le 1er décembre 1955 à Montgomery, en Alabama. Une époque où le ressentiment donne naissance à la rébellion et où un geste peut apporter le changement. Ce simple geste posé par Rosa Parks crée un soulèvement qui fera date dans l'Histoire et fera de Martin Luther King Jr. un leader. Boycott est le récit explosif de cette histoire."
