A beautiful blue-eyed baby boy is born to a sharecropper couple.
Visited by Angels, and given power to heal, Kuimba never speaks but elicits haunting, melodious sounds wherever he goes.
Misunderstood by his father but deeply loved by his mother, the boy is soon discovered by the overlord’s wife.
Lucy becomes enamored of this baby to his detriment. Her appreciation lights the fuse of hatred smoldering within the heart of her son, and only child- R.Ed. Sworn to kill this “Jesus boy”, R.Ed spends his time devising ways to torture Kuimba.
