WANDA, DAISY AND THE GREAT RAPTURE

It’s a sticky hot summer in the swamp lands of Pawley’s Island, South Carolina. Step-sisters Wanda and Daisy are used to people disappearing: their mother fled the hospital after a suicide attempt, and their sick father keeps running off to an imaginary town he thinks he’s the mayor of.
