"Old Ma and Old Pa Anderson have raised their lovely granddaughter
Lizzie as their own child. But then one day Lizzie disappears without
a trace. And their lives are changed forever. They would move heaven
and earth to find her, but they are a black family living in
Mississippi - in 1950's -where the law of whites rules, and where the
life of a black man has no value. They struggle for justice, but it
is futile. Then, when Old Ma dies unexpectedly, Old Pa has nothing
left to lose. Before his departure from this world, Old Pa wants to
accomplish one thing: to face down the white man and force him to
reveal the dark secret surrounding the disappearance of his Lizzie.
He embarks on a search of no return - for Lizzie, for Old Ma, and for
his dignity as a black man."
