With the help of his mentor, a slave-turned-bounty hunter sets out to rescue his wife from a brutal Mississippi plantation owner. In the American South, two years before The Civil War begins, a slave named Django (Jamie Foxx) is set free by Dr. King Schultz (Christoph Waltz) a German bounty hunter so he can help track down some criminal brothers/slavers who had owned him previously. After their initial team-up, the new friends continue to ride along together during which Dr. Schultz teaches Django how to be a proficient professional outlaw catcher and deadly pistoleer. When Schultz later learns of Django's estranged slave wife Broomhilda (Kerry Washington), who was sold off to a wealthy plantation owner named Calvin Candie (Leonardo DiCaprio), the two men hatch a plan to infiltrate Candie's estate and rescue her.
