Set in the post-civil war era, Savannah tells the true story of the legendary Ward Allen (Caviezel), an Aristocrat-turned-market hunter (keeping local dining establishments supplied with fresh duck), his business partner – a freed slave named Christmas Moultrie (Ejiofor), and the love of his life, free-spirited Lucy Stubbs (Alexander). As the changing times force the brilliant but troubled Ward to challenge the government to recognize his rights as a market hunter, Ward fights to preserve his love, his life-long friendship with Moultrie and above all, his cherished way of life on the Savannah River.
