Twenty–three year old Ash Kroth comes from an old
southern family of wealth and prestige. It's 1936, but
despite this, and his driven political ambition to one day
become governor, Ash recklessly pursues beautiful
college student Kitty Wilkes. Ash's life is forever
because of Kitty, and thirty years later, as a
segregationist governor, he must confront the consequences
of his love for her.
