Synopsis

In the mountains of Franklin County, Virginia, the Bondurant brothers are the stuff of legend. The eldest, Howard, managed to survive the carnage of the Great War, but he returned home unmoored by what he had seen and done. His brother, Forrest, nearly died from the Spanish Flu that took his parents. He beat back death with a quiet strength and ferocious, visceral invincibility that came to define him. Jack is the youngest sibling - impressionable, sensitive, smart. Times are tough and jobs are scarce, but the Bondurants are entrepreneurs and have built a thriving, local business by concocting an intense and popular brand of moonshine. But Franklin County's bootlegging days are about to end with the arrival of Special Deputy Charlie Rakes from Chicago. The new "law" Rakes brings is lethal and corrupt and will challenge everything the brothers have built and represent. But while the rest of the county gives in to Rakes' ruthless crackdown, the Bondurants will bow to no one.
