A simmering feud between two powerful Southern families bursts into violence in Beaufort, South Carolina, when a Gullah teen runs away from a sadistic foster home and into the lives of a hard-fisted shrimper whose drinking can’t drown out his tragic past; a beautiful social worker with her own demons; a homeless schizophrenic Shakespearean searching for his family; and a child psychologist about to be swept into her own crushing drama. These characters, and more, come together to protect the teen when they discover a murderous conspiracy to destroy his life. Events speed toward a volcanic conclusion as the war between the families comes to an explosive head that will leave a devastating end for some, but a merciful new beginning for others.
