Grace's father (Willem Dafoe) compares slaves to caged birds.

It is 1933, in Alabama. Manderlay is a plantation where a group of people are living as if slavery hadn't been abolished 70 years earlier. Upon leaving Dogville in 1933, Grace and her father head far south to the state of Alabama where they arrive upon the bizarre place.
