Description: In a near-empty Northfork orphanage, Father Harlan gently tends to Irwin, a comatose eight-year-old who lies near death. As orphanage caretaker Harlan reads aloud about Northfork's years-ago forced evacuation to make way for a hydro-electric dam, Irwin's imagination takes flight. In his subconscious, characters from the history of Northfork's dam come to life, helping to prepare Irwin as he struggles to come to terms with his own impending "evacuation."
