A tortured man returns to the town he ran away from as a child to exact his revenge on all those who wronged him, and face the one man he fears the most. His father.
In a desolate, completely unremarkable town in the mid eighties Aesop Quarrels grew up living a tortured existence. His father, Sheriff Edsall Quarrels, was a cruel and vindictive man on his best of days. More so after the birth of his “freakish albino son”(his words). Amid the constant abuse he endured while growing up, Aesop was forced to witness his mother’s abuse at the hands of his father’s weekly poker buddies. Nineteen years after escaping this living hell, Aesop has returned to exact his revenge. After receiving news of his mother’s apparent suicide, the fires of suppressed rage and vengeance have been stoked. He returns a tortured soul. Symbolic tattoos adorn both his arms. One side depicting scenes of Hell, the other scenes of Heaven. He wears them proudly, a badge to the horrific struggles that they both endured.
One by one he will make them pay; not only to mend the shattered pieces of his own life, but for his mother’s suffering as well. Past horrors begin to unfold as he embarks on a twisting trail of carnage that must ultimately lead to Aesop facing the one man responsible for their suffering. As he struggles with the terrible weight of what he’s done, and the price that he will eventually have to pay, Aesop heads towards a final showdown with his father and, in the process, he will uncover a hidden family secret that threatens to tear him apart.
