This is a story of the early years of Coffee County and Enterprise, AL. The bulk of the story takes place in the early 1900s, but is told in flashback with the first scene initiating in the year 1964. It is a story of the interpersonal and real life struggles that African Americans and Caucasians faced as this region of the south experienced an agricultural shift from the primary crop of cotton to more diverse crops, and specifically to the peanut crop.
 

The two primary sets are the Train Depot of Enterprise, AL and the Rawls Hotel Restaurant.  All characters represented by actors and their respective stories are fictitious, with the exception of John Pittman who was the actual Coffee County Agricultural Extension Agent in the early 1900s, and Ben Byrd who was the President of the Enterprise Banking Company.
