    Synopsis: 

    Brett Charles, a decorated officer, returns to his childhood home from WW II transformed by his sacrifice, but that home is not ready to catch up. Charles is the African-American son of a housekeeper, returning to the Deep Southern mansion where he was raised: that of long-time US Senator Ellsworth Langdon. An honorable soldier's new ambitions, the early whispers of Civil Rights reform, and the blossoming of love in a most unexpected quarter are the sparks in a tinderbox just waiting to take fire.
