Twelve-year-old Davey Barnett, delivering groceries, comes upon a murder being committed. Bravely trying to stop it, he slashes the woman's attacker with his knife. But this is 1941, in Farmer's Mound, Texas - would the police believe a black boy's account of what happened in that run-down house? Certain he has killed a white man and would be blamed for the white prostitute's death as well, Davey flees. Years later Davey is now a respected attorney and the current murder investigation of a retarded pregnant teenage threaten start to unravel the past. A surprising story with a surprising dramatic climax.
