Commencing in Boston in the pre- and duration-era of the American Civil War, two white men vie for the love of a woman. The jealous rejected suitor causes his victorious rival to be abducted, dipped in a staining solution and sold South into slavery. Periods of extreme cruelty, unbelievable suffering and degradation are interspersed by rare islands of love and humanity in his life as a slave.
