Hill Fire is a folk life play produced semi-annually by the Montgomery County Arts Council in Winona, Mississippi. It is based on the real stories of people who live in the South. A new play is locally written each year from collected stories and written history and depicts the lives, history, and traditions of Southerners and their families.

A Gift of Hope Is based on the book "The Power of One" written by Sally Palmer Thomason with Jean Carter Fisher. The story is set in the small Delta town of Tutwiler, Mississippi. As the story begins, Sister Anne Brooks has just gotten word that a doctor is desperately needed in that community, which is exactly the kind of place she was looking to serve. She, along with other nuns, is able to empower the community by providing health care and job opportunities for the residents. This inspiring story is filled with the rich history of the Mississippi Delta that is depicted through drama, comedy, and music.
