Ottie Lee and Calla have two very different stories, yet they are both traveling on the darkest summer day in Indiana, 1930. Neither woman experiences a direct route on that day of the public lynching of young black men. White Ottie Lee is moving toward the carnival atmosphere of the lynching, and black Calla is trying to get far away from it. With rich dialogue and beautifully drawn characters, their stories paint the land with sentiments of people who are somehow surviving the Jim Crow mentality.
