In this play based on real life, a middle-aged gay man mourns the sudden departure of his longtime companion and the death of his beloved mother when a mysterious but familiar stranger arrives to prod and goad him into revealing perhaps more of himself and his own faults than he realizes. As his mood gradually changes from anger and despair to hope and renewal, he recounts his unusual boyhood growing up in the hills of northeast Alabama, where his family attends a Holiness church that practices serpent handling as a testimony of faith that sometimes ends in death.
