On a plantation in the Deep South, two enslaved young men, Isaiah and Samuel, find moments of intimacy in the barn where they share duties tending to the animals. There, they can let their love — and a rare sense of hope — bloom. But their love threatens the system of the plantation. And when an older man, who is also enslaved, starts preaching of sin, others on the plantation begin to turn against each other. Isaiah and Samuel's love brings the plantation, and the weight of its prisoners' histories, to a powerful moment of reckoning.
