After World War II, a Northern-based cannery company attempts to purchase a tract of farm land in Georgia. The land belongs to Julie Ann, but her no good husband Henry sells them her only legacy. The cannery then wants the two plots of land adjacent to Julie Ann’s but neither owner will sell. This infuriates Henry and ultimately unites a town across a racial divide.
