Sullivan Harris promised the people of Kline, West Virginia, water. But when wells turned up dry, he disappeared with their cash. Jeremiah Weber was elected to run him down. Postmistress Gainey Floyd is suspicious of Sulley when he appears in her town but reconsiders after wells fill with water. Sulley grows uneasy when his success makes folks wonder if he can find more than water. He lights out to escape such expectations and runs into men digging the Hawks Nest Tunnel - but what they thought was a blessing is killing them. Sulley becomes an unexpected catalyst, bringing Jeremiah and Gainey together to find hope.
