He must wake every morning to the knowlege that he is a peice of property, belonging to Alfred Campbell, a plantation owner. But things are changing. There are rumblings in the slave community about abolition, and Jerome begins to look forward to the day when he will be a free man.

Their love cannot remain a secret forever and is under increasing pressure from Jeromes relationship with Alice, another slave. As the drama moves to its inexorable conclusion Jerome is faced with a host of choices: will he choose Alice or Anita, poverty or wealth, slavery or freedom?
