After the local Ku Klux Klan threatens the busy cafe in Whistle Stop, Alabama for serving coloured customers, the female owner and her black handyman find themselves on trial for an unsolved murder. A chronicle of courage and ingenuity that avoids becoming as overwhelmingly heart-warming as you might have feared. Not the most tantalising item on the menu, but a flavoursome little dish nonetheless.
