Historical epic based on early strife and triumph in the life of Peter von Scholten, a 19th century far-sighted, racially enlightened and privately high-living governor of the (then) Danish Virgin Islands. After many disputes with authorities in Copenhagen and with local officials and plantation owners, von Scholten swuelched a looming black uprising by arbitrarily abolishing slavery in 1848.
