Slovenski opis filma:

Grace potuje z očetom na jug Amerike. Vendar se jima nekje v Alabami avto pokvari. Odločita se, da naredita postanek v bližini jeklenih vrat Manderlaya. Premor prekine prihod mlade temnopolte ženske, ki vztrajno trka na okno avtomobila. Grace ne posluša svojega očeta, zato gre za njo skozi jeklena vrata. S prihodom v Maderlay se Grace sooči s kruto resničnostjo: čeprav je bilo suženjstvo izkoreninjeno že dolgo nazaj, še vedno obstajajo ljudje, ki so zatirani. Odloči se, da ostane z njimi in jim poskuša pomagati do svobodnega življenja.

Originalni opis filma:

After gangster Mulligan's cars colony, fleeing northern justice, finds a hiding place in Alabama, spoiled, naive daughter Grace refuses to travel on after seeing the Manderlay cotton plantation being run under slavery rules, called Mam's law, inclusive flogging. She keeps half of dad's goons as guard to force the dying matriarch-owner's heirs, which she shamelessly dispossesses and reduces to 'staff', to taste destitution under absurd, gun-imposed contracts. The 'slaves' are made free partners, supposed to vote for progress after lessons from Grace. But almost all her democracy-pupils prove fickle, dumb and selfish, except old Willem. Her and their ignorance in Southern planting and crafty Dixie ways means more problems are created then solved. By the time dad returns to pick her up or abandon her for good, she's the one who has learned and changed the most.
