From the emotional story of one family's struggle with rural poverty, pain and loss, the unequal power of beauty, the pits of despair and the longing to escape comes Kane, a beautifully crafted and poignantly told tale of patience and perseverance. Mired in the most difficult period of their lives, Carl Kane struggles to hold his family together as the holidays approach and salvation feels as difficult to find as the finances needed to keep the family afloat.
