Soap opera-ish romance based on the relationship between widowed ambassador (and third President) Thomas Jefferson (Neill) and his young mulatto house slave Sally Hemings (Ejogo)--an affair that lasted for 38 years. (DNA proved Jefferson to be the father of one and possibly all six of Heming's children.) Sally remains dignified through the years as does Jefferson. The most excitement is Sally castigating her lover about his contradictory attitudes towards slavery.
