Following a suicide attempt and consigned to a segregated insane asylum, attorney James P. D. Gardner finds himself under the care of Dr. James Boozer. Fresh out of medical school, Dr. Boozer is eager to try the new talking cure for insanity and encourages his elderly patient to reminisce about his experiences as the first black attorney to practice law in 19th-century West Virginia. Gardner's most memorable case was the one in which he helped to defend a white man on trial for the murder of his young bride.
