Otis Barner lives a very quiet life in the small Tennessee town of Davis. Born into poverty and suffering from a harsh childhood, he is considered by most to be a man slow in mind who lives at the edge of society. But Otis is not slow. He's just different, and like any one else, he has dreams for his life. To be someone's hero. To build a secret castle. To dance to Bob Crow and the River. To fall in love. When he meets Audrey Reagan, his dreams start to crystallize. A woman for his house. A life with someone he loves.
