    This one-act, two character play opens during the pre-dawn hours of November 5, 1831.

In the predawn hours before the trial a mysterious woman enters to purify the courtroom. Seven days later she is there by the hanging tree when Turner is executed and thrown into the darkness of death – where he fears he has been eternally abandoned. When Nat is finally given light he struggles to make his case – taking us on a journey where we see a bright, enslaved boy grow into a divinely-inspired freedom fighter. And the mysterious woman is there – stealthily guiding Nat and us to our long-forgotten home.
