In 1913 German East Africa (now Tanzania), an impoverished countess is purchased to be the wife of an abusive and hated plantation owner (Hersholt), and she soon finds herself terrorized by the alien environment. Tiffany, a low-budget, independent studio, challenged the majors with this colonial melodrama, investing half a million dollars to make a talkie in two-color Technicolor.
