This film is inspired by the true story of Dido Elizabeth Belle, the mixed race daughter of Admiral Sir John Lindsay. Raised by her aristocratic great-uncle Lord Mansfield and his wife, Belle's lineage affords her certain privileges, yet her background denies her others.  While her cousin Elizabeth chases suitors for marriage, Belle is left out of the social circle to ponder her identity and the possibility of finding love.
