Sarah Baartman has lost her family in the Dutch and English massacres of 1810 South Africa, and faces certain death by staying. She ends up in London, dancing in a cage and displayed as a primitive oddity. Alice, Sarah's English governess, truly cares for her, but Sarah, initially wanting fame, is essentially a slave - unable to return home, surviving through self-denial and gin, and humiliated even in death. A dramatization of a true story. Some descriptions of sex, violence, and strong language. 2003.
