A novel set in the United States in the 1930s. It masterfully describes the atmosphere of the time, albeit with a universal vision: it shows how the life of a family is affected by the problems of society. In particular, by the racism that prevails in the southern United States at that time. Atticus, a lawyer and father (his children are Jem, a 12-year-old boy, and Scout, a bit older), agrees to defend a young African-American accused of rape against a white woman. In this way, the protagonist puts his own life and that of his family at risk, but he insists on defending justice. Through this trial, told from Scout's point of view, he earns the respect and affection of all the people.
