He left home as a child. He traveled the world and visited places few men have seen. There is no way to contact him. Yet, whenever a death occurs in the family, he knows to return home. He just knows. Academy Award® Winner Sidney Poiter (1964, Best Actor in a Leading Role, LILLIES OF THE FIELD) is Brother John in this compelling film about the mysteries and prejudices of a small Alabama town on the brink of upheaval.
