"Forever damned in Mississippi: two young coloured children burdened with the history of a family rife with addiction, violence and abuse, attempt to evade this apparently unalterable fate. Based on actual events, this moving film follows a large Afro-American family on the verge of dealing with its own foreboding past or becoming the victim of a crippling destiny: to remain forever imprisoned and without prospects in run-down Mississippi. Kari, a bright young girl, seems to be the only one who can escape this destructive world without risking the loss of her family."
