From Academy Award nominee Ava DuVernay, ORIGIN chronicles the tragedy and triumph of celebrated journalist Isabel Wilkerson as she investigates a global phenomenon of epic proportions. Portrayed by Academy Award nominee Aunjanue Ellis (“King Richard,” “When They See Us”), Isabel crosses continents and cultures to craft one of the defining American books of our time while enduring unfathomable personal loss. Inspired by the best-selling book “Caste,” ORIGIN explores the mystery of history, the wonders of romance and a fight for the future of us all.
