The story of Paul Green will capture you. This native son of North Carolina went to Broadway and back with a dream — that someday he could write a new ending for the Old South. Can a play create justice? Can an actor perform change? This documentary takes a deep dive into how Green’s controversial plays made waves in the areas of integration, capital punishment, and chain gang reform in 1920’s North Carolina.
