For a runaway slave in the 1840s south, life on the run can be just as dangerous as life under a sadistic Massa. That’s what 15-year-old Naomi learns after she escapes the brutal confines of an Alabama plantation. Striking out on her own, she takes refuge in a Georgia brothel and falls into a star-crossed affair with a smooth-talking white man. The product of their union is Josey, who becomes caught in the tide of history when news of the Emancipation Proclamation reaches the declining estate.
