In the year 2000, two Maceyville, Alabama police officers respond to a 911 and discover a rift in time.|
In pursuit of an arsonist, Kathleen "Kat" Templeton, the department's first black officer, and her partner Sergeant James "Mitch" Mitchell, find themselves in 1963 Maceyville.
For Kat, this is an opportunity to save an aunt that died in 1963. However, she is unprepared for the segregated, racist time period. No longer in uniform, armed or carrying police identification, she quickly discovers the reality of her new world.
Her white Yankee partner, Mitch, soon learns "the way it is." As he and Kat are drawn deeper into the violent 1960s, he must work through his emotions regarding black-white friendships and loyalty.
In their quest to alter past events, they are faced with new threats to family and friends--as well as their own lives.
