In the 1950s rural Mississippi Delta, young Albert Sidney McClanahan stands on the cusp of manhood. Yearning for answers to life’s eternal mysteries, he turns to Lucy, his family’s colored cook, for comfort and wisdom. Despite the gulf between them, imposed by race and culture, Albert and Lucy form a bond of love and affection that can never be spoken, only remembered in the fullness of time.
