A fictionalized account of the slave rebellion led by Nat Turner in 1831 in Southampton County, Virginia.
The bloody slave rebellion led by Nat Turner in Virginia in 1831, and the savage reprisals that followed, shattered beyond repair the myth of the contented slave and the benign master and intensified the forces of change that would plunge America into the bloodbath of the Civil War.
