It's the summer of 1955. The Morris brothers have been locked up for some time in Choctaw Penitentiary. Still young and ambitious, their long road to freedom comes to life on screen. The voice of an unsung soul sings his story with the honesty and grit of a field holler. Morals are uncovered with each step the brothers take through the muddy Mississippi. If it is blood that the authorities want, well the mosquitoes have gotten the best of it. Southern dreams have always haunted the brothers internally with a pain that would give any inmate the "rabbit feet." A road to accomplishment can easily turn into a road to perdition with the ivory tower at the end being a little smaller and not consisting of ivory.
