THE MESSY MAN Synopsis
In the middle of a cold, Midwestern cornfield, an orphaned girl with remarkable abilities accidentally conjures a man from thin air. The stranger is traumatized, his thoughts scattered. The girl, Willa, is able to glean Little about the man save for his name—Peter—and the fact that he doesn’t belong in her world. Unbeknownst the girl, her summoning has caught the attention of others with vested interest in Peter’s fate…others both living and dead. If Willa is to repair the damage she has done and return Peter home, she must fully embrace her gifts and plunge headlong into a hungry, grasping nightmare.
