This script is based on the novella "Benito Cereno" by Herman Melville. It is the best of Melville's short works next to "Billy Budd." Captain Delano, returning from a trading mission to China, comes upon a disabled ship apparently captained by Don Benito Cereno. In fact, the slaves aboard the vessel have revolted and Cereno is their prisoner.

Delano is trapped between doing what his conscience says is right and what the law demands.
