An African-American family now living in LA are visited by an old friend from the South, whose presence and sometimes mysterious ways bring to the fore divisive tensions between the parents and their sons. A bold, beguiling blend of domestic melodrama, suspense, satire and folkloric mysticism, the film explores the often conflicting influences of tradition and modernity, superstition and rationality, independence and togetherness.
