Prime Leaf is the multi-generational drama that pits two brothers against each other in a story that wrestles with what William Faulkner called "the human heart in conflict with itself."After witnessing his father's murder, young Boyd Converse comes of age amidst family struggles over low prices paid the family by the rapidly domineering tobacco conglomerates. He joins the Dark Tobacco District Planters' Association in their struggle against Duke Trust. The Possum Hunters (later, Night Riders) are born and subsequently ravage the land burning barns and inflicting violence against farmers who refuse to cooperate, Boyd in tow. One night, the Night Riders flog Boyd's brother and a family drama of epic proportion is set in motion: the conflict of a man defined by his violent actions yet pulled by family loyalty.
