Overview

What does a preacher’s kid do when the stock answers don’t make sense anymore?

Mark Cloud escapes Fred, Texas, to relish the anonymity of college, new friends and the possibility of romance. But a series of catastrophes forces him home, where everything has changed in the one place where nothing changes. In desperation he bargains with God. When the unthinkable occurs, Mark leaves Fred to escape the questions he can't bear to answer. He sets out on a pilgrimage with no goal, unsure if the road offers enlightenment or oblivion. The path leads him to a childhood friend and their unresolved debate, but now each is arguing for the other side. Mark suspects he will never truly escape from Fred without returning to face the answer he fears.
