Set in the 1800’s, O.C. Armstrong is a Mississippi tenant farmer that shares the crops with his brother-in-law Bud, and good friend old black Neil. When the men stumble upon a treasure the Wisp seems to offer a warning of doom, and the Native Indians tell them the treasure is evil.
Then life takes an unexpected turn, the Armstrong family is torn apart, but will they heed these words of wisdom and leave the treasure alone? Is it too late? Or will they pursue the wealth and be forced to face the consequence?
