English professor Lam Corso is a liberal activist teaching at a small Southern conservative college. When he receives a death threat, he ignores it. Even when violently attacked, he is convinced it’s all a mistake. But when his home is broken into and his wife’s business vandalized, Lam is forced to face facts. The police can’t find a single lead. Lam’s wife–a passionate anti-gun crusader–is outraged when Lam brings a gun into the house for protection. Left to their own devices, Lam and Susan must examine their marriage and their values in the face of a carefully targeted attack from an assailant spurred into action by a different set of beliefs. What will it cost to survive?
