Dell, a former mercenary, and his wife, Dolly, a former battlefield nurse, believe they have finally found a place of peace in a deceptively idyllic small town on the Oregon coast. But early one morning, just before daybreak, a body washes up on the towna€™s pristine beach. The dead mana€™s shaven skull has been torn open, and his upper body is covered with neo-Nazi tattoos. The police quickly pick up Homer, a a€œwalking woundeda€ schizophrenic who has been showing off a wristwatch he says God just gave hima€”a watch engraved with a symbol that exactly matches one of the dead mana€™s tattoos. Regardless of the fact that Homer could never have inflicted such damage on a man twice his weight and half his age, he is immediately arrested because the D.A. is desperate to close the case before it negatively affects tourisma€”the towna€™s only industry. Mack, the director and sole employee of the local mental-health outreach program, is outraged but helpless. He confides in Dolly, who shares his outrage.

And people around there ... well, they understand him, anbsp;...
