In 1860, celebrated actress Fanny Kemble moves her family from Philadelphia to Georgia where her husband owns a plantation. Witnessing the horrors of slavery, she becomes a staunch abolitionist, helping slaves escape through the underground railroad. She returns to Philadelphia after divorcing her outraged husband.
