The McAllans and the Jackson family both face struggles as they try to build small dreams on a cotton farm in rural Mississippi. When Jamie McAllan and Ronsel Jackson are called upon to serve in World War II, their families are upended. Ronsel returns a changed man, but finds America is still dominated by Jim Crow Laws. Rising to sergeant in an all-Black tank battalion has earned him no respect at home, and the friendship he forged with Jamie during the war is challenged. The simmering drama carefully crafts a tangled web of intimate relationships that will emotionally captivate and also interrogate social hierarchies still affecting contemporary society.
