This multi-tiered documentary explores the life of Margaret Garner, the American slave who inspired Toni Morrison's novel BELOVED.

The film interweaves historical narrative along with examinations of contemporary issues involving race, using the production of the opera as a focal point. MARGARET GARNER is an interesting and devastating portrait of an American tragedy.
