What is "Antebellum" about?

In a Louisiana slave plantation run by Confederate soldiers, slaves are treated harshly and not allowed to speak without permission. Those who attempt to escape are killed and their bodies burned in a crematorium. After a failed escape attempt, a black man named Eli (Tongayi Chirisa) watches as his wife is murdered and her body placed in the crematorium. A woman who had been assisting them is later brutally beaten and branded until she submits to being called Eden.
A group of new slaves are brought to the plantation. Among them is a pregnant woman whom the daughter of the plantation owner, Elizabeth (Jena Malone), names Julia (Kiersey Clemons) and places in the care of Eden. Julia asks Eden to plan an escape while Eden urges her to keep her head down. That evening, during a dinner where Julia and Eden are forced to wait on soldiers in the army, a shy Confederate soldier named Daniel (Robert Aramayo) is attracted to Julia and arranges her cabin later. When Julia tries to play on his kindness and asks him to help her he beats her for speaking to him without permission, causing her to miscarry.
In her own cabin, after being raped by the general, Eden hears a ringing cell phone.
The scene shifts to the modern era where a cell phone ringing awakens Eden, who is actually Veronica Henley (Janelle Monáe), a renowned sociologist. She is preparing to take a trip to speak at a seminar and promote her book, which is particularly hard for her because she has to leave her loving husband, Nick, and her daughter, Kennedi. She has a bizarre online meeting with Elizabeth which leaves her uncomfortable but she dismisses her feelings and cuts the meeting short.
