In 1902, Soll (Robert Duvall), a Texas plantation owner who depends on convict labor to keep his farm running, takes a liking to Horace (Lukas Haas), a young boy who works the fields to raise money for his deceased father's headstone.

Meanwhile, Soll's relationships with the African-American cons working the farm are complex and informed by both racism and compassion.
