A regular day in a sugarcane plantation in Louisiana changes course when a local white farmer is shot. A group of old black men take the first courageous step of their long lives by coming forward en masse to take responsibility for the killing of a white racist whom one of their members has shot. As the sheriff confronts the suspects, only the young plantation owner (Holly Hunter) takes responsibility to protect the group in this compelling drama of racial tension.
