Black is a former convict who became an evangelical Christian in prison. White is a university professor and an atheist. One morning, White decides to end his life by jumping in front of a train- The Sunset Limited. Black, in the right (or wrong) place at the right time, saves his life. Feeling responsible for him, Black takes White back to his tenement in Harlem, where the men engage in a spirited discussion about life, religion and the rights of man. Best known for his novel “No Place for Old Men” which became an Academy-Award-winning film. Cormac McCarthy is one of America’s most prolific and significant authors. The Sunset Limited was adapted into an HBO film starring Tommy Lee Jones and Samuel L. Jackson.
