It's 1982 in the state of Mississippi. An African-American farmer is standing trial for the murder of a white woman he swears he didn't commit. Just eighteen years after the Mississippi Civil Rights Workers' murders, racial tensions that have been bubbling below the surface threaten to erupt and engulf and destroy the fragile harmony of civil society. The whole country is waiting with baited breath for a verdict that many see as a foregone conclusion. But despite the eloquent arguments and reasoning from the prosecution, they have failed to establish a motive. Why would a respected hard-working member of the community take the life of another? The verdict is brought in and only then is the truth revealed...
