Description

The Lazaretto quarantine hospital is a crucible of life and death; sick passengers and corpses stop here, while immigrants are taking their first steps toward the American dream. The life-in staff is mostly black Philadelphians, and when two of them arrange to marry, the city's black community prepares for a party on its grounds. But the celebration is plunged into chaos when gunshots ring out across the river. Now conflicts escalate, lies collapse, and secrets begin to surface; like dead men rising, past sins cannot be contained
