An elderly African-American woman, desperate to get her family out of the Chicago projects, sends them to live with her brother-in-law in Mississippi. Loretta isn't keen to go, as she drinks too much and the uncle lives in a dry county. Uncle Earl has enough on his plate already, as he has a struggling business and a wife with Alzheimer's disease. But the family does find strength in their hometown roots, and begin the difficult task of rebuilding their lives.
