Summary
A stormy night in Red Springs, North Carolina, in the late 1800s. A run-down general store. Four white men sit by a stove, warming themselves with memories of the good old days -- before the war. Before emancipation. A young black man enters. He says he is a pro-slavery writer and offers them cognac. He asks them questions about the good old days. He tells them a story. His srory is familiar to all of them. It is a story of slavery -- a story they helped write -- full of brutal oppression, suffering, and rage. And when the young black man is finished, none of their lives will ever be the same..
