Traditional theatre and African dance are infused together to tell the story of Cora, a young slave who convinces Lucius, the plantation owner, to teach her to read. When their relationship becomes something more and Cora is caught in a romantic triangle, it disrupts the plantation's surface harmony. Against the violent backdrop of the Nat Turner rebellion, everyone involved is forced to make decisions that challenge their deepest beliefs.
