"In 1924, George and Ike Simmons lived just three hundred yards apart
physically, but economically, socially, and racially they were separated by a vast
chasm of racial prejudice. George is from a wealthy, former plantation family.
Ike is the son of the domestic help at “the big house”. Can their families
overcome racial barriers to develop lifelong friendships? Family tragedy,
courage, faith, honor and a servant’s heart in both men leaves an interesting
trail. Marrying the right women turns out to be a very important key."
