Shackled, bound, and trapped within someplace between reality and make believe, lies swollen bellied bloodied Mary Turner, the accused murderer Sidney Johnson, and the loving husband Hayes Turner. All are haunted by the voices of the mob that resides in an abyss that tangles, throws, and switches the elements all in an effort of stopping the memories from coming forward. Their torture continues even in the afterlife. Sidney has reluctantly been given the task to force Mary to remember the horrible accounts of her lynching so they both can move on. In this world entangled in history and unforgivable acts against humanity, to forget is to forever perish, just like the countless stories before them trapped within old newspapers and forgotten memories.
