Set in the 1950s, the story follows veteran and pulp-fiction aficionado Atticus “Tic” Freeman (Majors) as he journeys with his childhood friend Letitia (Smollett) and his uncle George (Vance). They’re on a road trip from the South Side of Chicago to “Ardham,” Massachusetts in the time of the Jim Crow laws and enforced racial segregation. They’re looking for Atticus’ missing father, Montrose (Williams), who may have gone looking for insight into Atticus’ late mother’s ancestry.
As they journey across the Midwest, Tic, Leti, and George encounter dangers lurking at every turn, especially after sundown. The trio’s search-and-rescue turns into a struggle to survive as they try to overcome both the racist terrors of white America and monstrous creatures that could be ripped from a horror paperback by H.P. Lovecraft.
