Trailer trailer



Karl Childers is a developmentally disabled man who murdered his mother and the man who was the object of her adulteress affair back when he was just 12 years old. Now at the age of 37, Karl is being released back into society. His adeptness at fixing lawn mowers lands him a local job. The setting is a backwater town in Arkansas. Karl is considered creepy by most, yet he is kind as well. He becomes friends with a young boy who is the same age that Karl was when he committed the murders. The young boy's mom has a very abusive boyfriend, and this gets Karl's limited mind thinking once again about justice in an unjust world.
