Gaines published in Set on a s Louisiana cane farm, the novel addresses racial discrimination and a bond that cannot be usurped. One afternoon, Candy Marshall, a white plantation owner, discovers that a white Cajun farmer, Beau Boutan, has been shot in the yard of a black man named Mathu. She enlists the help of seventeen other old black men by having them come to Mathu's yard, each with a shotgun and one empty number 5 shell. She and the men all claim to be responsible for the murder in an effort to protect the guilty party. Meanwhile, Sheriff Mapes arrives to the scene to arrest the real murderer, most likely Mathu as he was the only black man who stood up against racism and the Boutans, and is capable of shooting a shotgun.
