Battered and left alone, a 10-year-old sharecropper's son finds comfort and unconditional love from a big-hearted farmer. Because, however, the kindly agrarian is a black man (Louis Gossett Jr.) and the boy (Joseph Mazzello) is white, their relationship causes an uproar in their heretofore peaceful Southern community.
