The fictional Alabama hamlet of Maycomb, where To Kill a Mockingbird is set, experiences the Great Depression. Jean Louise Finch, a bright young girl who grows from six to nine years old throughout the story, serves as the protagonist. She is nurtured by their widowed father, Atticus Finch, along with her brother, Jeremy Atticus. Notably, he warns them that killing a mockingbird is wrong because it is a defenseless and harmless creature.
Atticus decides to represent Tom Robinson, one of the town’s Black citizens, despite threats from the neighborhood, after he is wrongly accused of raping Mayella Ewell, a white woman. He once finds himself in front of a crowd that wants to kill his client, but he won’t give up on him.
Tom is found guilty despite Atticus’ argument, which offers a more logical explanation of the evidence; he is later slain while attempting to flee from law enforcement. As they develop an interest in Arthur Radley, a reclusive neighbour who is a local legend, the kids, in the meantime, act out their own miniature drama of prejudice and fear. They are drawn to the temptation of intruding on the Radley property and have their own opinions of him. Through a series of kind deeds, Radley gradually establishes himself until finally stepping in to stop Bob Ewell from attacking Jem and Scout.
