Colin Whitehead is a powerful storyteller whose narrative is based on a true story. For 111 years, the Florida Reform School silently mistreated its young men until archaeologists from the University of Southern Florida unearthed unmarked graves of some of its residents. Two boys Elwood Curtis and Turner hope to earn enough points to be released from the torturous conditions. Elwood, inspired by the words of Martin Luther King Jr. "Love your enemies", hopes for the best. Decades later Turner pays tribute to Elwood's idealism.
