While external factors, like racism, poverty, and injustice often tear African American families apart,
sometimes factors within the family structure are even more divisive and crippling. 
Effie Raye returns
to rural Mississippi after a thirty year absence.  She brings with her a daughter and her newly born grandchild
to introduce them to her “rooting place”.   The visit is everything she expected and more as family secrets unfold.
