He wants what he can't have-his mother's love. But who's to say he won't die trying? In this twisted tale of unrequited love, the bond between mother and son isn't given a chance to thrive until it is almost too late. Unaware of the otherworldly forces propelling their lives into chaos, Acanthus and Dahlia Fountainbleu lose themselves to madness and isolation. Their only escape is in loving others too hard, and not loving each other enough. Serving as the backdrop to this catastrophic narrative, the communities of Backwaters and Bayou Lafitte yield intra-racial division amongst the blacks and Creoles of Color. Old wounds erupt issues of skin color and hair texture in judging one's worth. Backward ways and thoughts prove stagnating to both communities, and offer no hope for healing.
