As Summers Die (1986, TV Movie)


Forbidden passion and burning prejudice ignite in the heat of the deep south. Emotions are riding high in a small southern town. A lawyer, Willie Croft (Scott Glenn), is trying to defend an ageing black woman (Beach Richards) against the Holts clan, a powerful and greedy family. A family with a dark and sinister past, whose evil schemes and plots are safe in their incestuous past. That is until lawyer Willie Croft finds an unlikely ally in Whitsey (Jamie Lee Curtis), a wayward cousin of the Holts. The pressure's on and nothing's going to stop the Holts from winning, especially their own kin. As Summers Die is the sensational story of love and hate, power and passion.
