The movie Out Of Liberty is an intense western jailbreak film based on actual recorded events.
Winter 1839. For months, members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints have been gathering to Missouri, stoking fear and uncertainty into the locals. This fear and misunderstanding leads to rising tensions, and the leadership of the Church—led by Joseph Smith (Brandon Ray Olive)—are eventually arrested on charges of treason. By the end of 1839, they are placed in a recently constructed jail in the town of Liberty, Missouri. Jailer Samuel Tillery (Jasen Wade) is tasked with guarding them until their next court hearing.
The seemingly simple task spirals out of control quickly, however, as Tillery realizes that he’s holding the most hated men in all of Missouri. Nightly gatherings at the jail consist of verbal harassment and throwing rocks through the windows. The growing mobs want these men dead, and they feel they’ve been given permission from the state to interpret and carry out the law as they see fit. Tillery — a man of the law — finds himself caught in the middle of the prisoners, the charges against them, and the mob desperately fighting to take them down.
