Set in an African country in the throes of a civil and racial conflict, White Material follows a French woman determined to keep her coffee plantation functioning even while social structures are collapsing and her workforce is bailing out. With her ex-husband at her side and her son violently propelled into the action, Maria must draw on all her resources to survive. Meanwhile, a rebel officer is hiding out nearby. As their way of life disintegrates around them, each character makes choices, none of which are predictable.
