Reset in Louisiana in 1959, Swallow, a 15 year-old-girl growing up in America’s deep South in the fifties. She discovers a mysterious man hiding out in a barn. When she asks who he is and the first words he utters are “Jesus Christ”, it’s as if all her prayers have been answered. Swallow and the town’s other children vow to protect him but the townspeople are determined to catch the fugitive hiding in their midst. Swallow begins to discover herself as she is torn between fantasy and reality when these two worlds collide.
