A Union general, a lawyer before the Civil War, commands a fort in not-yet-seceded Virginia. When a runaway slave arrives making an eloquent plea for sanctuary, whose laws must the general follow? When secession happens, he looks for every loophole he can to avoid returning the young man to the Confederacy. Based on a true story and an area premiere.
