Abstract:

In rural Mississippi, in the nineteen-seventies, Larry Ott and Silas Jones are boyhood pals, despite their different backgrounds. Larry, the child of lower middle-class white parents, and Silas, the son of a poor, single black mother. For a few months the boys share a special bond. But tragedy strikes when Larry takes a girl to a drive-in movie - she's never heard from or seen again. Larry never confesses, but suspicion surrounds him. Silas's friendship with Larry is broken and then he leaves town ... Twenty years later Larry, amid the whispers of suspicion, lives a solitary existence, and Silas returns. Then another girl disappears and Larry is blamed again. And now the two men who were friends must confront the past they've buried and ignored for decades.
