Set in 1933, the plot picks up where Dogville (previous film by Lars von Trier) ended, with Grace and her father (Willem Dafoe replacing James Caan) heading south. Reaching Alabama, they discover slavery still thrives at the Manderlay cotton plantation. Appalled, Grace decides to stay on, free the black residents and teach them about democracy. But replacing the old system isn't so simple, and Grace's good intentions eventually reap hellish consequences.
