    • Back to My Roots is the timely story of, unapologetically racist, Jedidiah Stone. He is the last tobacco farmer in all of Wetumpka Alabama and his farm is failing. Making matters worse, he has a fatal medical condition and needs a bone marrow transplant. Having no immediate family, Jed joins a DNA search website to find distant relatives. Nothing could have prepared this missing-link of a man for the life-altering journey upon which he is about to embark. With a click of the mouse, Jed learns that if he is to find a donor match to save his life, he will have to go back to his roots... all the way to South Africa.
