Summary:
Presents a real story of real people and real faith. It is a story of powerful Christian faith, intense personal commitment, and maddening human frailty. Though it ends in tragedy, this is a story of hope. That a black man and a white man might be joined in a common love of God in Mississippi defies the imagination.
