With his keen ability to evoke characters in the South and Middle America who find themselves in reduced circumstances, Brad Barkley restores our faith in human beings to endure the ravages of time with decency and humor. Out of intense loyalty, Reed feels reluctant to leave his crippled friend when his girlfriend pressures him to move on. Mourning their baby's death, a couple takes up dancing lessons to recapture their closeness. Two drifters, Bosco and Ray, scheme to murder an old man, steal his diamonds, and pay a doctor to save Bosco's life.
