Plot Summary
Minnie (Nancy Beatty) is at a loss over how to help her young son, Verlin (Keegan MacIntosh), who has closed himself to the world and will not speak. Her husband, Ferris (Robert Joy), is no help in breaking Verlin out of his shell -- but Verlin's child-like uncle Henry (Gary Farmer) manages to get through. However, after the two unlikely friends form a bond, Minnie starts to see Henry as dangerous, and Henry is sent away to an institution, causing Verlin to regress more than ever before.
