The year is 1862, and the Civil War rages through the South. On a Virginia tobacco plantation, another kind of battle soon begins. There, Cassius Howard, a skilled carpenter and slave, risks everything - punishment, sale to a cotton plantation, even his life - to learn the truth concerning the murder of Emoline, a freed black woman who secretly taught him to read and once saved his life. It is clear that no one cares about her death. No one but Cassius
