Set during the final days of slavery in 19th century Jamaica, the story follows the strong-willed, young slave July on a plantation owned by her odious mistress Caroline Mortimer. When a charming new arrival to the island, Robert Goodwin, becomes the new overseer, July and Caroline are both intrigued by his seemingly revolutionary determination to improve the plantation for the slaves and mistress alike.
The Christmas riots and the abolition of slavery turn the world of Amity upside down and throw July's destiny into question. But when order is restored and a new overseer Robert Goodwin arrives at Amity, July and Caroline are both intrigued by his seemingly revolutionary plans to improve the plantation. Could his ideals change everything?
Robert's arrival complicates things at Amity plantation as both Caroline and July begin to compete for his attentions. Robert is entranced by July, but is also occupied with re-organising the plantation along more humane lines now that the slaves are free people.
Angry and frustrated by the workers' refusal to work to his orders, Robert (Jack Lowden) takes violent revenge, hoping to scare them into working, to the shock and horror of July.
With the crop starting to spoil and Amity in ruins, Robert's sanity starts to unravel - with possibly devastating consequences for Tamara and her child.
