Synopsis

This powerful film centres around the character of Karl, a childlike man released from an asylum for the criminally insane. Terribly treated as a child by his fanatically religious parents, Karl now faces a moral dilemma. Should he step in and protect a young boy from a potentially abusive stepfather - or should he stand by and in doing so ensure his own freedom? A thoughtful, insightful drama, with an astonishing performance as Karl from director, writer and star Billy Bob Thornton.
