Notes:
A young woman arrives in the deep south and finds herself embroiled in a major controversy consisting of the murder of a black man by a privileged, well-connected white man and is pressured to tell the 'right' version of the story in order to exonerate the murderer and facilitate revenge against the victim's friend.
