It covers a span of three years during which both Maycomb, the small town, and people there, especially Scout Finch and her brother Jem underwent significant changes.
Scout Finch, our narrator and protagonist, grew up in a close-knit town of Alabama where people have clear social stations according to their living conditions and their family history in the town. All began in the summer when Dill came and kids enjoyed their adventures with new friends.
Despite their age, they knew their neighbors pretty well, except Arthur Radley whose nickname was Boo. They figured him who had been suppressed in his childhood and barely came outside as ugly and scary. It had been their daily venture to try to get him out. When summer ended, school life began.
There Scout found those differences and conflicts which she considered normal and natural before become tense and acute. Scout tried to get a conclusion with fist-fighting to understand the way life exist beyond the world she knew.
Through the process she went a further step in toleration and learned to see the world in different perspectives. The trail that Atticus took to defend a black man, Tom Robinson, brought dramatic changes to their life. However, Atticus insisted his point and explained to kids the reason that he chose to fight for justice both as a lawyer and as a father.
On the day of trail, Jem and Scout went to see how the case went. Although the innocence of the black man was obvious even to the eyes of children, the jury convicted his guilty based on his skin color. On their way back home from Halloween party, Jem and Scout were attacked.
When the man attempted to hurt Scout after Jem out of consciousness, Boo came out and saved them. It turned out that Ewell fell on his own knife and died as sheriff insisted despite the truth that Boo killed him for protecting the kids.
Scout showed her understanding comparing this to the mockingbird killing. After took Boo home, standing on his porch, Scout gained her new value of life. And there at home, Atticus waited beside the bed for Jem to wake up.

However, all of them come finally to the exploration of humanity and morality. To Kill a Mockingbird presents us the constant conversation regarding the inherent goodness and evilness of people.
There will be conflicts and battles both between inside and outside and between good and evil, in the end, goodness will suppress the evilness. When the story started, life seemed to be simple and people were all as ordinary as any folks. The trail was like a stone hitting on a calm surface of the lake making everything different.
Neighbors began to show their different side. He is a kind-hearted and hardworking man and just like the mockingbird never did anything harmful to anyone.
He symbolizes the innocent part of our humanity which is shot to death on its way escaping from injustice and prejudice.
