Son Hayes never speaks of the scars on his back. The men he works with take bets on how he got them. His brothers, Boy and Kid Hayes, don't discuss it. His past, just like these scars, is never far behind him. This stands true for the memory of his father, a man that never bothered to give his children proper names. He left the three brothers, Son, Boy and Kid to be raised by their mother, a hateful woman who blames them for the life she's been left with and the man she could not keep. Flash forward and we find Son, Boy and Kid as grown men. Following a dispute at their father's funeral, a feud begins to simmer between these sons and their half brothers. Set against the cotton fields and back roads of Southeast Arkansas, these brothers discover the lengths to which each will go to protect their family.
