As a young slave in the American south, Nat Turner (Nate Parker) showed an ability to read that shocked his owners, soon guided by the white mistress of the house, Elizabeth (Penelope Ann Miller), to explore his gift, teaching him the power of the bible. Becoming a preacher for his fellow slaves, Nat won respect and positive treatment from owner Samuel (Armie Hammer), who crumbles under pressure, turning to alcoholism to help numb himself as he barely participates in daily responsibilities. While Nat takes a wife in Cherry (Aja Naomi King), he also builds a reputation throughout the land, soon asked to officiate the baptism of a white man. Triggering long-dormant hostilities, Nat is subjected to a severe punishment, inspiring a dream of revolt he tries to communicate to other slaves, using the fury of Gods teachings to organize an army.
