In 1748, at the height of the slave trading era, English trader John Newton sails to the coast of Nigeria, Africa. Daily life is interrupted with great force and brutality; homes and villages are burned as families are rounded up before being placed captive in dungeons to a wait the transatlantic crossing. As Newton sets assail with his new cargo of slaves, his ship is afflicted by a violent storm which almost takes his life. It is here that Newton is forced to re-evaluate his life. He attributes his miraculous escape to the amazing grace of God.

Newton’s sensibilities change following this experience, but it isn’t until he comes into contact with a particular captive that he decides to renounce the slave trade. Once home in England, in 1760, John Newton uses the melody of a local Nigerian anthem sung in adversity by the captured slaves to compose the world’s most famous hymn: Amazing Grace. Amata has created a fitting tribute to the slaves and the land that led Mr Newton on the path to redemption.
