In early 20th-century rural Georgia, Celie Harris is a teenage African-American girl who has lost two children by her abusive father. He gives her away as a wife to Albert “Mister” Johnson, who also abuses her, and his children mistreat her. Celie’s loving younger sister, Nettie, runs away from the abusive father and seeks shelter with Celie. The sisters promise to write if they are separated. Mister attempts to sexually assault Nettie, and he kicks her out after she fights him off. Years later in 1916, Celie is meek from abuse. Mister’s son Harpo marries Sofia, and Celie is shocked to find her running a matriarchal household. Harpo attempts to overpower and strike Sofia, but he fails. Celie advises Harpo to beat Sofia. Sofia retaliates and confronts Celie, revealing her long history of abuse. She threatens to kill Harpo if he beats her again and tells Celie to do likewise to Mister. After Harpo fails to change after years of continuous abuse between them, Sofia leaves and takes their children.

Mister and Harpo bring home the ailing Shug Avery, a showgirl and Mister’s long-time mistress. Celie, who has slowly developed a fondness for Shug through a photograph sent to Mister, is in awe of Shug’s strong will. She nurses Shug back to health, and Shug, in turn, takes a liking to her, writing and performing a song about her at Harpo’s newly opened jook joint. Shug tells Celie she’s moving to Memphis, and Celie confides to Shug that Mister beats her. Shug tells Celie she is beautiful and that she loves her, and they kiss. Celie packs her things to follow Shug to Memphis but gets caught by Mister.
