Torched finds Sam Ransom at his first pastoral appointment in Holmes County, Mississippi, in the summer of '64. At a civil rights rally, he is reunited with two friends from his childhood. His decision to join their efforts to rebuild a black church torched by nightriders sets all three on a collision course with the Klan and two grisly murders. The story is about interracial friendship and romance, the ultimate sacrifice, atonement and redemption.
