Plot Synopsis

Based on the play by Cormac McCarthy. In a New York City apartment a deeply religious black ex-con who thwarted the suicide attempt of an asocial white college professor, who tried to throw himself in front of an oncoming train, tries hard to understand his actions. As he attempts to connect on a rational, spiritual and emotional level, the troubled man remains steadfast in his hard-earned despair. Locked in a philosophical debate, both passionately defend their personal credos and try to convert the other.
