The Savannah-set Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil centers around an "incident" at Mercer House, once owned by the great-grandfather of songwriter Johnny Mercer, and explores the murder of a young escort named Danny Hansford and his accused murderer, antiques dealer Jim Williams, a closeted gay man, with whom he had a relationship.
