Salvation through sacrifice: this elusive promise
has held sway over the human soul for countless
generations. Leonard's allegory takes us to a tiny,
parched town quivering on the brink of extinction
in Depression-era Indiana. Here, we find an unlikely
friendship forged between a deeply traumatized
boy and a disillusioned ex-preacher, who finds in
him a chance at rekindling his own spiritual fire.
Theirs is a fragile bond that threatens to drown in
the poisonous murk of the town's religious zealotry
and thirst-crazed hysteria.
