Description

On his first day out of an Alabama orphanage, Alexander takes a fateful ride with a highway stranger who inducts him into an eccentric clan of small town misfits. Soon he's dragged into a foolish plot, directed by the erratic leader, Mackie. Alexander is so preoccupied with the feeling of belonging and the amusement of daily life as a country store clerk that he ignores repeated hints of impending destruction. When he's ultimately called upon to perform a senseless act, the truth about his newfound family is revealed and he's faced with a dangerous choice between love and morality.

"Mackie's Gift" is a personal story of becoming that digs into the quirky and casually violent culture of semi-rural Alabama. It explores how the primal desire for love and attachment can cause reality to blur, potentially making shocking events appear commonplace. Irreverently funny, honest, and ultimately tragic, "Mackie's Gift" presents a disturbing interpretation of "love conquers all."
