Plot Summary: In "Moving Midway," award-winning film critic Cheshire uses the relocation of his family's North Carolina plantation house to embark on a surprising journey. While observing the elaborate, arcane preparations for the colossal feat of moving a centuries-old house over fields and a rock quarry, unexpected human drama from both the living and the dead emerges. Some fret over how Mary Hinton, past mistress of Midway and now a ghostly presence, will react when the house gets trucked across the landscape. And a chance encounter leads Cheshire and his cousins to discover a previously unknown African American branch of the family. Through movies and music, Cheshire examines the Southern plantation in American history and culture, and how the racial legacy from the past continues into the present.
