Set during the 1930’s Great Depression in a small southern Indiana town named Zion, Buddy Layman is a mentally-challenged boy whose sweet nature touches everyone he meets. 

One day a stranger and former preacher named C.C. Showers passes through Zion looking for work and food.  C.C. takes an immediate liking to Buddy, relating to him--and his challenges--in ways no one else can. 

The two become close friends and C.C. soon finds himself as Buddy's mentor and teacher.  When the well-meaning town folk gain knowledge of C.C.’s former occupation however, everything changes, leading to a horrible tragedy.  

“Renders the humor and horror of the hinterlands with staggering accuracy….compelling.” —New York Magazine
