It is the time when young Harry Collins with his little sister stumble across the dead body of a woman. This woman had been brutally mutilated and left to die in the bottoms of the River Sabine. The news of the dead woman leaves the whole town in shock and tension. Soon, another dead body turns up and it’s of the white woman and all Harry was left to do was to stop the killing spree with his Klan neighbors. So, he with his sister set out to investigate who the real killer is, but the truth is ever so dark and gruesome apart from the killings themselves.
