After ten years, Sheldon returns from New York City to Paris, Georgia. His mother is Evelyn, a laundress who is stubborn, ornery, opinionated, mean-spirited, insulting, and inflexible. Evelyn sends a ten-year-old boy claiming to be Sheldon's son to see Sheldon. Sheldon comes home to resolve the matter. Old arguments reignite between himself, his mother, his sister, and his brother.

Sheldon disputes that the boy is his son. He does not want to be a part of fatherhood or family. Then, a white man from New York arrives at Evelyn's door, claiming to be Sheldon's partner
