1860, Jacob, a mulatto slave was freed when his father died. His white half brother Jackson hated him; his blond hair and blue eyes made it easy for him to pass for white. Later, Jacob returned to the plantation to lead other family members to freedom. Murder, assault, thievery and arson were necessary to save his family and the woman he loved, but Jackson only wanted to catch and kill him.
