This interesting, novel film is based on various legends from the folklore of North and South Carolina. Capers, along with his grandfather, Pyle, is out to challenge the Devil. This frightens their Appalachian neighbors and ends in the strange death of the older man. It's up to Capers to
continue their quest, a voyage that takes him to Washington, DC. This independent production displays some real imagination and has a fine cast with some talented character actors. The direction is a little slow at the start, but once the unusual story and characters hit their stride, the film
becomes most enjoyable.
