The simple family trip leads to unexpected and emotional encounters with local residents. Along the way, they get a crash course on the history of the early Chinese immigrants and Black sharecroppers in the Deep South that they never knew.They meet historians and Mississippi Delta residents of all colors who help fill in the blanks to their family’s life in Mississippi. At every turn, more surprising revelations pop up and change their family forever.
