A thirst for death. His master's desire to save him. A young girl's mission to heal his shattered spirit.
Years have passed since Jimmy and his daughter Magnolia were sold to owners in different states. Broken and beyond hope, a last attempt to end his suffering earned him a night in the pit. Now his owner is eager to be rid of this troublesome slave before he loses the money he paid. He takes Jimmy to town to be sold and they meet slave owner and reformed abolitionist Charles Hendricks along the road. Charles can see Jimmy is a lost soul--a mere reflection of the man he once was because of his painful existence, so he asks to purchase the slave and offers Jimmy a special proposition.
Once Jimmy is at Livingston Plantation, his new masa's daughter stirs up memories of the past he wants to forget. Will Jimmy finally give in to his growing anguish and end it all? Or will the gentle soul of this child give him enough purpose to persevere?
