Jack Candless is a drunken, cynical, 32-year-old newspaper reporter who covers a rape case in a small, Louisiana town, hoping the sordid story of a sweet, innocent young woman being brutally violated in a rice field will make national headlines, saving his career and his marriage. Instead, he discovers nothing is what it seems, and that a far more frightening story of raw lust and corruption is buried in the dark, violent heart of the bayou.
