Resumen:

The year was 1966. By day, Booker Wright ran his own business; by night, he waited tables for whites at a local restaurant. Unfortunately, all of that would change after footage of him aired in the NBC documentary Mississippi: A Self-Portrait. Before a national audience, Booker had done the unthinkable: he spoke candidly about the lives of Greenwood, Mississippi's black population. And, while the ripple effect from his remarks would cement him as a civil rights icon, his candor drew the ire of the town's white citizens.

Four decades later, Yvette Johnson, Wright's granddaughter, comes upon the footage that took the beautiful Delta town by storm all those years ago. This discovery sends Johnson on a harrowing search for answers as she interviews family members and townsfolk about the real Booker Wright. As she uncovers her grandfather's story and gets closer to the truth behind his murder, she must also confront her own conflicted feelings surrounding race, family, and forgiveness.
