A religious landowner (Nelson Villagra) invites 12 of the slaves who work on his sugar plantation to join him for a reenactment of the Last Supper.

When the slaves revolt on Good Friday, the landowner must decide whether to honor the promises he made them or clamp down on the rebels and uphold the plantation system.
