In the fall of the wonderful, terrible year of 1968, Ray Watts comes to Middleburg seeking the answer to the question—What’s the meaning of life?
When a crazy guy with a big knife evicts him from the attic he’s been crashing in and steals his guitar, he’s not only homeless, but has lost his sole means of support. He finds a new place to live, only to stumble on an unspeakably gruesome scene.
He meets someone who might have the answer. But knowing the meaning of life won’t do him a lot of good if he’s dead.
