What constitutes "family"?

Becky was born into a world where race is the primary indicator of the value of a person - but as she tries to reconcile the injustices she sees and experiences with the customs of her culture, she begins to question the foundation of who her family really is.  When a new preacher moves to town and starts challenging the status quo, and Becky develops an unlikely friendship with the "wrong" sort of person, truths come out that will either destroy her... or set her free.

Setting: Kentucky, 1890's.
