Summary
A regular day in a Louisiana sugarcane plantation changes course when a local white farmer, a racist, is shot. A group of old, black men takes a courageous step by coming forward en masse to take responsibility for the killing. As the sheriff confronts the suspects, the young plantation owner stands alone in her defense of this group of men who stand resolute against decades of injustice
