Special | 26m 45s
A raucous, old-fashioned adventure romance set in 1875, The Life & Times of Persimmon Wilson follows a former slave sentenced to death for a murder he didn't commit. While awaiting execution, Persimmon tells his tale of a life going from the plantation to the wild frontier. His journey is both a wild tale & an examination of assumptions about identity & truth.
