A gritty, spiritual tale of escaping children traveling the Mississippi in 1932

Four orphaned children escape an American Indian school and canoe down the Mississippi seeking a home. Traveling from abuse and cruelly through expansive lands, poisonous snakes, tent revivals and manhunts they move from fear towards wisdom and freedom.
