On a Saturday morning drunk, the Count and his grown son Lucky stumble onto a black woman's shack in the quarters of Cornerville to pilfer for food. When she happens up on them, the Count pulls out his pocket knife and cuts her throat. They go to jail but not for long because the Count's brother King, as usual, gets them out. But the old lady's not done with them. Especially Lucky.
