Set against the backdrop of the post-Civil War era, Manhunt is a conspiracy thriller about one of the best-known but least-understood crimes in history, the astonishing story of the hunt for John Wilkes Booth in the aftermath of assassinating a President.

The assassination of Abraham Lincoln sparked the most extensive manhunt in American history, spanning from April 14 to April 26, 1865, to capture John Wilkes Booth. Despite the relentless pursuit, Booth successfully evaded capture for 12 days, leading Union cavalry through the swamps of Maryland, the forests of Virginia, and even Washington, D.C.
