Based on a true story, Shackles describes what happens when a group of little boys search for buried treasure in their backyard on Sullivan's Island, South Carolina, and dig up a bit of history -- a set of shackles used centuries ago on slaves who were held on the island. One summer morning, Hunter is watching his younger brothers, Oliver and Taylor, play pirates in the backyard while his mother works inside the house. When the little boys unexpectedly dig up shackles, instead of the treasure they were hoping for, they are sad and confused. Neighbor and friend, Mr. Green, is summoned he tries to explain the painful hidden history of Sullivans Island. Taylor cant believe that something as horribly cruel as slavery could have happened in his own backyard.
