Synopsis: In July of 2009, in southern Kentucky where the rules are sometimes made up on the fly, 60 year old Mark Casey has been arrested for crimes he did not commit. Now the battle begins between Mark and the good ol' boys of Kentucky. This particular case is a big deal for a little rural town where nothing much ever happens. The prosecution has virtually no evidence against Mark and the case is built on speculation. It's looking like an acquittal is the logical outcome. But in southern Kentucky, money always carries a lot of weight. Mark is about to find that even in the Bible-belt, not everybody lives by 'The Golden Rule'.
