Working Title 1.5: Strange Mercies
Pete Duval evokes a world of staggering heat and blinding midday light, a world of stray dogs and curlews. It is into this world that Mayhew arrives, a cameraman for a Catholic news network as much fleeing the desiccation of his marriage as pursuing the story of a young woman who may or may not bemarked by stigmata.
