Plot: 1902. In the remote Sea Islands off Georgia, where African-Americans lived and retained their traditional language and culture, a family prepares to leave and migrate north. As they celebrate this one last day of togetherness at a picnic, Nana Peazant, the family's matriarch who has chosen to stay behind, tells stories of their African ancestors and the arrival of slaves on the American shores. By exhorting her loved ones never to forget this past, she tries to assure their future strength -- which must always come from a respect for oneself and one's history.
