In the town of Hackley, Alabama, when household domestic Sarah Benjamin Gabriel visits Doc Henry L. Thomas complaining of stomach pains, Doc realizes that she has a malignant tumor and has only days to live. After hospitalizing Sarah, Doc sends for his son Lloyd, the town's ambitious district attorney, and Rev. MacGill. In his office, Doc recalls the difficult breech birth of Sarah's brother, John Kane, thirty-five years earlier: John's birth coincides with a violent thunderstorm that knocks out the electricity. Once Doc cuts the umbilical cord, however, the power is restored. John leaves town at the age of sixteen, returning eight years later when his mother Ella has a sudden stroke. Arriving back in town on a Trailways bus on the afternoon of his mother's stroke, John stays with her until her death a few hours later, then leaves town right after the funeral.

As they share a quiet moment alone, Louisa tells John that she moved to New York to teach school, but after becoming disillusioned by the city, returned home to teach, then invites him to visit her at their old school house. Meanwhile, Orly, who has confided his suspicions to Lloyd, goes to search John's motel room with the district attorney.
