Movie Info

Film critic Godfrey Cheshire discovers that his cousin Charlie has inherited Midway Plantation from their extended family. Located on hundreds of acres in North Carolina, this grand artifact of the Old South now rubs shoulders with strip malls and fast food chains. Charlie has plans to literally move it elsewhere, and Godfrey has plans to film his efforts. But then they hear from some distant relatives who also want to have a say in the decision -- descendants of the plantation's slaves.
