He finds the small closed community still haunted by memories of 1964, when civil rights activists fought for integration while the Ku Klux Klan roamed the back roads. It was during that summer that a local black church was destroyed by arsonists and that Alans beloved cousin Phoebe was killed in a mysterious car crash along with the wife of his black friend Sam Daniels.

As he begins to uncover the history behind that senseless tragedy, and as the people involved reveal their unsuspected role in it, Alan must confront his regions violent history and his own buried demons.
