It’s the Civil War, near the frontlines, and everything about life on a southern plantation has been
thrown into chaos. The slaves aren’t free, but they aren’t really slaves either. Proper southern women
can no longer be proper southern women. You can’t tell “us” from “them” because nobody knows
who we are and who they are. Two children, one white and one black, who grew up together in the old
world will have to find a way to make it in a whole new world in this comic book story.
