Set during the Great Depression, in the midst of the oppressive Mississippi Blue Mountain summer heat, business has not been going well for a cotton gin owner and his young wife. In a desperate attempt to rescue himself from his financial woes, he sets fire to his neighbor’s thriving plantation. Unable to prove the act of arson, the neighbor seeks revenge in the most unconventional of ways.
A chance encounter between two young people along a Mississippi railroad amidst the Great Depression leaves them both exposed in ways unimaginable. The young woman’s passionate account of her fragmented family somehow captivates the nervous young man’s curiosity, leaving him wanting more than just a little conversation.
