PG-13| 1 hr. 30 min.
Abston (Chris Cooper), a Union Army captain, leads his Civil War regiment to a Kentucky farm run by Sarah Anders (Patricia Clarkson), whose husband is off fighting for the Confederates. Although cordial respect develops between Abston and Sarah, war-related incidents cause mounting difficulties and shifting loyalties. Sarah's young son draws the local preacher (Kris Kristofferson) into the situation, and, after a galvanizing sermon, a bloody confrontation is at hand.
