Plot: In a deeply religious community the naive Bess enters into a relationship with oil-rig worker Jan. When she prays to have Jan stay home for good - her prayers are answered in the form of an accident that leaves Jan paralyzed from the neck down.

Jan urges her to take on a lover and tell him the details - but as the trysts become more intimate and deviant, Bess if convinced it is all a part of God's plan. -- Chris Kavan
