Judge Peyton is dead and his plantation Terrebonne is in financial ruins. Peyton's handsome nephew George arrives as heir apparent and quickly falls in love with Zoe, a beautiful octoroon. But the evil overseer M'Closky has other plans-for both Terrebonne and Zoe. In 1859, a famous Irishman wrote The Octoroon, a melodrama about slavery in America. Now an American tries to write his own.
