"At the age of twelve, Sydney Henderson pushes his friend Connie Devlin from the church roof. Looking downon Connie's motionless body, Sydney believes he is dead. 'Let Connie live and I will never harm another soul,' Sydney vows to God. At that moment, Connie stands up, wipes his bloody nose, and with a laugh, walks away. In theyears that follow, the self-educated, brilliant and now almost pathologica lly gentle Sydney holds true to his promise. Yet others in the small rural community regard Sydney's pacifism as an opportunity to exploit and tormentthe vulnurable Hendersons. Raised on the books his father has long collect ed, Sydney's eldest son Lyle shares a deep respect for the power of words. But forced to witness the persecution of those he loves, Lyle turns his back on God and literature and adopts a more aggressive strategy for the protection of his family." - from the dj.
