Set in a fictional Indiana town during the Great Depression, Jim Leonard Jr.'s moving drama focuses on the friendship between an ex-preacher from Kentucky and a disturbed young boy. The boy -- deeply traumatized by a near-drowning in his past that led to the death of his mother -- is now terrified of water, but also gifted with the ability to divine its location. As the bond between these two grows, the preacher works with the boy to overcome his crippling fear of water. And when the townspeople, desperate for a spiritual leader, mistake an eventual bathing for a baptism, their confusion leads to some significant consequences in The Diviners. Learn More
