Moses decides to take on a troubled black young man (Lijah) who was headed for the work house. Lijah is so filled with hate, especially for white people, that he cannot see that the Gold Hill people care. After getting in a fight with the kids and punching Moses in the stomach, Murphy decides he has had enough: either got with me on a freight run or go back to prison. Lijah starts to change on the freight run, but has a setback when there is an accident. But love wins over and Lijah comes up with a career choice that changes his life. Written by dtwiddo@yahoo

Watch Lijah as he drives the team after his accident and is using the "fake" hand. You can see his elbow way back, trying to make it look like his arms are the same length. See more »
