A dynamic, engaging saga of crime, race hatred and bigotry in the South.

In the summer of 1932 Ben, a black man from Georgia, is wrongfully accused of murder. His forty-year prison sentence completed, he returns home to where nothing much has changed except the date on the calendar, including the animosity towards blacks and the fact that the real murderer is still living the gentile southern life. Ben's struggle to regain his life and adjust to society brings one confrontation after another with friend, foe, and a daughter who thinks he is dead.
